Pukehina Beach Bay of Plenty Reviews
Quiet and off the beaten track Jul 08, 2010
If you are looking for a beach getaway that is not overcrowded yet still within a few hours of Auckland, Hamilton or Tauranga then look no further.
Pukehina Beach is seemingly yet to be discovered by the masses. The beautiful long white sandy beach means that even on a busy day you can still have your own private piece of beach.
Accommodation is in the form of private baches, and there are plenty of them to rent, many of which have beach access direct from the property. I have stayed in a few of these and have found them to be in very good condition and very affordable.
Come prepared though, there is only one shop and one restaurant (which I think adds to the charm of the place!) and the nearest shops are in Tauranga.
