Walk off your deck across tree-shaded lawn and down a dozen steps onto the beach. Situated at the beautiful Whangaumu Bay on the picturesque Tutukaka Coast. The Sands Motel offers 6 x 2-bedroom units (sleep 4-6), each with outside deck, lounge, Sky Guest Select 40+ channel TV, full kitchen and bathroom with shower. The Sands Motel has lots of mature trees and grass areas, along with BBQs and picnic tables. This is a great place to unwind after a tiring journey. When diving the Poor Knights Islands this is the ideal location: only 5mins drive to Tutukaka Marina and a great place for non-divers to relax during the day. The Tutukaka Coast offers access to the POOR KNIGHTS ISLANDS for day trips and diving, SUBERB BEACHES and COASTAL WALKWAYS and a range of restaurants, bars and cafes. Whangaumu Bay is located 30 minutes NE of Whangarei in Northland and only 1.5 hours from the Bay of Islands. Try walking to Ngunguru from The Sands Motel at low tide or drive to Whale Bay and Matapouri for a superb coastal walkway. Swim, kayak or walk along the beach at Whangaumu Bay or try golf, surfing and fishing nearby..
