This secluded beach is accessible only on foot or by kayak, but the trip is definitely worth the effort. Pohutukawa trees loom over a beach of stone and crushed seashells, and the warm waters of the Pacific lap quietly against the shore, creating an unrivalled, peaceful atmosphere.
The beach is a 15-minute walk from West End in Ōhope or a 10-minute kayak ride. It's also accessible from Whakatāne via the Ngā Tapuwae o Toi walking track, but be certain to check the tide tables before making the trip, because the west end of Otarawairere is inaccessible during high tide.
The Whakatane Wedding Fair brings together wedding professionals from all areas of the wedding planning process for one day to showcase the best our region has to offer when organising your wedding. Visit Surf & Sand on Sunday, 16 September 2018 between 10am-3pm. Gold coin entry. Proceeds to charity.
