Unlike its famous sister, Cornwallis Beach, Kaitarakihi Beach remains unspoiled by the crowds, providing anyone visiting a serene and private experience. The beach boasts a long stretch of sand and gentle surf that's ideal for swimming and kayaking. During low tide, kids can explore the rock pools on either end of the beach and have fun climbing around on the rocks.
Fishing enthusiasts will love the rocks located on both ends of the beach, making it a perfect spot for fishing.
The beach is considered safe for swimming as the waves are mostly gentle, and the water quality is good. Long drop toilets, car parks, and picnic tables are available on-site for your convenience.
Please note that the access to the beach is via a well-compacted dirt road that may be narrow and tricky for low sports cars. However, the short drive is worth it for those seeking a peaceful and relaxing beach experience.
