Where is it?
Mangawhai Heads has both a surf beach and harbour. The local coastline is loaded with beaches of golden sand. Fishing is popular from the shore and boating equally so from here. The harbour is tidal and has a sand bottom - at low tide you can walk for miles from our property. An hour on a smooth run from Auckland and 45 mins from Whangarei with online groceries delivered to your door twice a day from Walkworth and local veges available along with local wine and farmers produce at the Sat markets will see you well supplied with food. Being a resort location there is an influx of second home owners flooding in during weekends and with that the locals benefit from a bunch of good restaurants and lots of coffee stops. Two vinyards here offer tastings. If you are invited to Tara Iti you are fortunate - however our local Mangawhai Golf club is a great links course.
The coastline is spectacular. Miles and miles of coves and walkways that hug the coast it is breathtaking.
The community is vibrant and people are friendly! Many people are semi-retired and an equa number have young families. There are no dangerous pests or animals in New Zealand which makes bush walking attractive to many.
Deep sea fishing charters, harbour cruises on both coasts are day trips from here: The mailrun to Kawau Island is handy as is the marine reserve at Goat Island. Matakana with its fabulous movie theatres is a good night out after a visit to a local winery.
Farming is New Zealands biggest export earner after tourism now and then wine. Farms surround the towns and cities and Mangawhai is no exception
Our local pub has good food and often has weekend artists during the afternoon as well as hosting concerts through the summer.
Take a drive to Whangarei City 45mins north, head out to Whangarei Heads and lunch at the pub on the water after walking Mt Manaia - or just drive and have lunch!
Its two hours to the Bay of Islands
Our temperature is sub-tropical - you'd be brave/mad to swim all year. We do have a winter even though we're termed the 'winterless north'. Winter is mild.
