Waipu Coastal Trail
The Trail, used by the early immigrants to Waipu, passes along the Esplanade Reserve in front of recent developments, and a portion crosses private "Riparian Rights"grazed land with the owners generous consent.
The Trail can be entered at either end, where notices, stiles, orange markers and posts indicate the path.
The Northern end beginging across a small tidal stream, down the far end of the beach. The Southern end is accessed down the 'right of way' opposite Waterman Drive.
You can return to either end by Cove Road, a distance of 1.5km.
Sedimetary limestone rocks, a feature in Waipu are best seen here on the Northland coastline. 
Pohutukawa, New Zealand's "Christmas tree"lines the coast and blossoms of varying reds appear in mid December. 
The regenerating native coastal bush at the southern end also has Totara, Nikau, Cabbage, Kohekohe trees, Teatree (manuka), Treefern (mamaku), Silver fern (ponga), abundant flax, an occasional Toetoe, and four very young Kauri.

Take Time to enjoy the natural surroundings
