There are two good surfing places in the Hokianga Harbour:

Hokianga Sunset

  • Waimamaku Beach 
  • North Harbour sand dunes



There are several places where one can swim all around the Hokianga Harbour between Pawarenga and Waimamaku Beach, just are locals for their favourite swimming place. One of the most lonely beaches are in Mitimiti.

Wairere Boulders

Extreme caution should be used if swimming on the west side of Opononi outside the harbour mouth!
