Waipatiki Beach

Waipatiki Beach, situated just north of Napier is a great destination. Waipatiki means “water…sand flounder”. It was once an estuarine valley and a very good place for early Maori to catch these fish.
The walk along the cliffs is very adventurous. Quite overgrown and sometimes very narrow … not registered with DOC anymore. But if you are in for a little bit of an adventure I can definitely recommend it. Just be careful!

    Waw mooi hé. Ik ben er geweest. Ook in Mahia beach toen moko de dolfijn nog leefde. Hen jij die wel eens gezien? Was zo leuk als je in het water ging kwam hij gelijk.
