Featured Popular


The beach is situated at the mouth of the Mōkau River and is known for its stunning natural scenery and peaceful atmosphere.

The surrounding hills and farmland provide a picturesque backdrop to the beach, which is a popular spot for fishing, surfing, and swimming. Visitors can also explore the nearby Mōkau Caves, which they can find by taking a 5-minute stroll from the river mouth.

You'll notice in the summer the popular native Pohutukawa trees in full blossom along the river mouth.

Mōkau Beach is also a great fishing spot at the river mouth end, where you can catch decent-sized kahawai and snapper.

With its unspoiled natural beauty and tranquil setting, it's a great destination for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and immerse themselves in the stunning scenery of the North Island's west coast.
