Central Hawke's Bay Beaches

A quintessential Hawke’s Bay summer comprises three of life’s greatest pleasures: sand, sun and surf. Lucky for us, Hawke’s Bay has 360 kilometres of glorious coastline in which to enjoy the season’s warmer weather.

Some of the region’s best beaches are found in Central Hawke’s Bay, so throw everything you need in the boot of your car for a beach-y road trip, and relax at some of the district’s hidden gems.

A post-beach stop at the Patangata Tavern for a cold drink on the way home comes highly recommended.
