Beautiful beach!!
Apr. 2021 • Family
An absolutely beautiful beach, appeared safe for swimming (we didn’t swim but plenty of others were) and close to town facilities. You can’t visit Orewa and not pop down to this beach. Also has surf lifesaving club as well.

long, flat, very safe beach
Jan. 2021
can do a really good walk along this beach - it has shallow safe water good for kids, lots of eating places along the road that runs the length of the beach, there is shade under the pohutukawa trees, cool kids playground, toilet facilities and at times also a lifesaving guard.

Great safe beach. Peaceful beach one side lots of restaurants and shops on the other. Kayaking. swimming, paddle boarding, and Jetskies. Long tide in and out and only waist height water for 20 to 30 meters so very safe for kids.

Last lost days of summer...
Jan. 2020
Orewa Beach was as great as ever last summer. The sand and water were perfect and it created a charming harmony of form and function that made this couple's swimming excursion a pleasure last summer. It was an idyll before Life irrevocably changed due to the Pandemic.

One of the best beaches in NZ

This beach has very firm sand so is perfect for walking on. Easy to push a stroller or ride a bike. Very good and safe for young families as there are usually no large ways.

A hidden gem
Mar. 2020
Don't travel through the tunnel when heading north from Auckland - take the coastal route and stop in Orewa ! Such a great wee town about 25 minutes north of Auckland city. A great place to stop for lunch / shopping / ice cream if you are travelling between Auckland and Northland or vice versa. Lots of wide open space - lots of places to grab some food and sit by the beach or eat outside at one of the many cafes. A hidden gem that has had a face-lift and lots of modernisation over the last couple of years. Familys - couples - solo - teens - there's definitely something here for everyone.

Enormous Sandy beach, great for a swim and lovely cafe
Mar. 2020
We went to Omaru Beach on our way North just for a rest from driving. Perfect for paddling, swimming, or just walking along the sand. I can definitely recommend the cafe (Beach House Eatery) which looks onto the beach with an uninterrupted view and serves both coffee, lunch and evening meals. We returned for coffee on our way back down south because we liked the stop over so much.

Really enjoyed my stay at Orewa Beach
Jan. 2020
We camped at the camp ground and did lots of walking along the beach and swimming. It was a safe beach and there were hundreds of swimmers spread along the beach. Lots of paddle-boarders to watch, and surf lifesavers if you want to swim between the flags.
Food, drinks and ice creams can be purchased from the surf club cafe.

Great campground too!!!

Perfect beach
Feb. 2020
Beautiful beach - we didn’t want to leave but had to as we are travelling around the North Island by camper and wanted to see the North of the island. The beach is safe and clean, and very easy to walk along the whole length of it. Just across the road are multiple eateries and plenty of parking availability! Perfect ..
