Oakura Bay (South)

Whangarei Bays

Oakura Bay is a beautiful east facing beach, almost a kilometre long adjacent to the deep water entrance to the Whangaruru harbour. 

Oakura Bay is sheltered from ocean swells by several outlying islands which makes for very safe swimming for all ages.

The beach features clean white sand with generous access from the road for half of its length.

For boaties, Oakura is a gateway to paradise. From water skiing in the harbour, exploring beautiful unpopulated bays through to coastal diving and fishing or venturing out to the famous Poor Knights Islands or the entrance to the Bay of Islands at Cape Brett with Percy Island and its famous "Hole in the Rock".
