Waitarere Beach, one of the best-kept secrets of the North Island's west coast is regarded as the place to go when you want to get away from it all. Within easy commuting distance from Wellington (New Zealand's Capital City), and from nearby Palmerston North, Waitarere Beach is an ideal spot for either a weekend getaway or as a permanent residence.
The Waitarere Beach community includes a well-stocked Four Square Store, takeaways, café and restaurant. There are plenty of parks and reserves to keep the kids busy at, with the Waitarere Domain being a favourite.
Levin, the nearest town, is 10 minute's easy drive should you need something more.
Waitarere Beach is wide and sandy, allowing plenty of room for all your favourite beach activities including land yachts, four-wheel motor bikes, surfing and fishing. The beach slowly drops off into deep water so there's plenty of safe paddling space for the youngsters, and during the summer months the surf club set up patrol. Waitarere Beach is also a popular fishing spot where Kahawai, Snapper, Groper, Gurnard, Flounder and Sole are the most common catches.
