Story: Hawke’s Bay places

Waipātiki Beach

Waipātiki Beach

Waipātiki Beach is a coastal settlement north of Napier, off State Highway 2. It is reached along a road that winds through farmland and exotic forestry. The entrance to the beach is crowned with a stand of original coastal forest. Small traditional baches, larger modern holiday homes and a camping ground look over the wide sandy beach.
