Parks & Nature
Puheke is an absolutely stunning beach with squeaky white sands. The water is crystal clear and there is often surf here that is great for surfers and body boarders. The best wave is at the far end of the beach and this can be accessed at low tide In the summer, dolphins are often around and have even come in to swim with people.

As you drive away from the beach parking area, you will notice a road that heads up to Mount Puheke. When you get to the top you can walk up the mount or take the coastal path to Karikari beach. The coastal path is not very obvious but you will see the tracks that others have made when you get closer.
