Head East from Omaha point to the Tawharanui Regional Park.Drive to the end of the road then you will come to an electric gate and it will open. ( just for animal protection ).Drive to the end of that road and park in the Car Park and walk onto the beach. Get your Board and go surfing in 1 of the three spots on the beach.

Just look out for Rays and the occasional shark but nothing to dangerous ay.
Also gets pretty crowded on holidays and weekends. Main spot in front of carpark is a mix of surfers boarders and swimmers so you need to watch out for a learner surfer smacking into you.
Its a beautiful spot. Very good for a family day out. Lovely views, rockpools, walks and great for camping.
I like it but just remember to look out for those bloody rays!!!!!!!

fat as - haha "the best and safest spot is the one in the front of the carpark" thats the most stupid oxymoron i have ever heard best is never the safest and theres no way that its a good wave.
