Waipātiki Beach

Waipātiki Beach

Waipātiki Beach is a coastal settlement north of Napier, off State Highway 2. It is reached via a winding road through farmland and exotic forestry. The entrance to the beach is crowned with a stand of original coastal forest. Small traditional baches, larger modern holiday homes and a camping ground face the wide sandy beach.
