Sightseeing

Best to go early in the morning to make the most of your visit, best on clear days and when not too windy, check the local weather forcast when you plan to visit. It is good to pay attention to all the information boards situated at the Cape, this will definitely give all the background and information you need.

1. > Here you can have hours of fun playing in the water, gathering shellfish on Tokerau Beach, as well as fishing from the beach. Kayaking or paddleboarding – even surf beaches such as Taipa and Cable Bay. 2. > Have a horseback ride, drive a 4WD down 90 Mile Beach, (you can rent from North-land Rentals for the day) or even hire a Blow- kart. 3. > Visit the authentic Kauri gum-digging site (Gum-diggers Park) which has remained untouched since gum holes were dug almost 100 years ago. Learn about the biggest industrial booms of NZ’s past. 4. > Sample fish and chips at Mangonui’s Famous Fish Shop or lick a huge ice cream from Cable Bay Store. 5. > Walk the Mangonui Heritage Trail with many interesting sites – see if you can find the negro’s grave! Have a tipple at Mangonui Hotel or a refreshing drink at the Waterfront Cafe – all the while watching the tide and the boats. 6. > Of course, there is fishing for all skill and experience levels. From fishing off the wharves to throwing a line off the rocks or even chartering a boat for a morning. 7. > Relax with a glass of local wine and view the myriad of stars above in the clear skies 8. > Take a bushwalk at Rangikapiti Pa or walk from Taipa to Reids Beach – best at low tide to go around the rocks 9. > Go for a Wednesday evening sail at Mangonui Mill Bay Wharf 10. > Sample local produce and art and crafts at the Tuesday evening market in Mangonui or the Saturday markets at The-church opposite the fire station (excellent chilli tomato sauce) or the Mangonui Hall with everything from breadboards to olive oil and earrings! All in all, you can have a relaxing break in Doubtless Bay or get active – but you will be sure to want to return‼

This one of the few all tide boat ramps to use if you cant launch from the beach, just be careful with the tide flow at the ramp. Also good clean toilet facilities available. Gas station for refuelling just across the road if needed.
