Wainui Beach feels like a world away

A pristine stretch of East Coast paradise, you can enjoy a host of recreational activities at Wainui Beach including catching some world-famous surf, swimming and fishing, all only a 10-minute drive from Gisborne.

This small coastal community is also a stunning spot to watch the sunrise, catch some waves or stroll along the golden sands beach and nature reserve.

With a suite of exclusive and luxury accommodation available at Wainui Beach, it’s an inviting destination to discover and enjoy your way.

Due to its close proximity to central Gisborne, Wainui Beach is also accessible via the Wainui Beach cycle track – a sealed and smooth 6km ride if you prefer the pedal-powered mode of transport.

The northern end of Wainui Beach leads you to Okitu Beach – another picturesque beachside settlement with delicious ice creams from the Okitu Store, always a hit. It's also handy for stocking up for picnics on the beach, a hot cuppa, hot food and takeaways to order.  pad-top-default pad-bot-default vheight-default mike Grid  pad-top-default pad-bot-default vheight-default mike
