The elevated carpark overlooking the ocean beach at Foxton is a great place to watch the sea and the sights or enjoy an awesome west coast sunset. Kilometres of hard west coast iron sand makes this the perfect playground for kite sports and blow carting. Drive at low tide to the Manawatu River estuary, a favourite spot for fishing, jet skiing, sailing and pleasure boating. The area is close to a café and to the Foxton Beach walkway system. It’s also Horowhenua’s best surfing beach and a safe, patrolled swimming spot in summer. Horses allowed on the beach but please keep off the dunes. Dogs allowed off leash on the beach outside of patrolled swimming areas and surf beach (ramp to ramp).
