Waipatiki Beach

A hidden gem located 40 minutes north of Napier, Waipatiki Beach is a local favourite and still manages to be one of our best-kept secrets. Discover the glorious stretch of sand for yourself and hit the open road with your favourite adventurers - after all, a journey exploring our backyard filled with pit stops is half the fun.

Tip from a local: Want to stock up on roadie essentials before your road trip? We suggest heading to the supermarket, or the BP station on route to Waipatiki, as the surrounding area is isolated with limited services.
