Northland Things to Do: 80 reviews and 94 photos


Pataua South is located 20 mins East of Whangarei on good sealed roads. Pataua South has an estuary which is very safe for young children, and yet 5 minutes walk along the beach is an excellent surf beach for the older children. A sleepy little place that comes alive in the summer its a great spot to spend a weekend getting away from it all. It is also the closest acomodation point to the Poor Knights Marine Reserve and dive trips can be arranged through local operators

Address: Half hour drive north east of Whangarei

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
