This tour will include a stop at Whangapoua Wharf in the hope of spotting kingfish and stingray that can often be seen around here. From there Tony will take you to New Chums beach. This is only accessible on foot or by boat. New Chums is a pristine piece of white sandy beach surrounded by bush clad hills. There has been no development permitted so you can enjoy the beach as if you were the first person to set foot on it. Not a house in sight. Tony will accompany you as you cross the stream and take the track that begins with a bit of rock hopping. Continuing on to the bush track which winds its way down to the beach through a beautiful stand of Nikau palm.  Morning tea will be provided.  If you have food allergies it is recommended that you bring a suitable snack to have with the complimentary coffee.

Lunch at Luke’s Kitchen in Kuaotunu is included. They are well known for their pizzas.

The next part of this tour will take you up over Blackjack Road to Otama and Opito. Otama is a 2km North facing stretch of white sandy beach. So clean the sand squeaks. This beach is backed by dunes and a protected wetland nature reserve.

What to bring: Water, appropriate walking shoes and clothing, camera, sunblock, togs and towel.
