Pauanui Beach is one of the all time popular holiday spots on The Coromandel. During the weekend you'll find the beach busy with walkers, dogs, surfers, paddle boarders and sun bathers.
There are also protected dotterel birds that nest along the sand dune.
Pauanui Beach is a great option for a leisurely walk, a romantic sunrise or a photo opportunity.
SURFING PAUANUI: On the water you'll find a friendly break for surfers, which is great for learning and a right hand point break for the more experienced.
SAFETY: Pauanui Beach is patrolled by Surf Life Saving NZ in the summer. Remember to swim between the flags.
