South Manawatu, Manawatu, New Zealand
Beach walk between Kuku Beach and Waikawa Beach
There is now a small carpark at the end of Kuku Beach Road and vehicles can no longer access the beach. It is a short walk from the carpark to the estuary. A track goes to the left, but it is also possible to walk along the shoreline when the tide is not high. 500 metres along the edge of the lagoon you can walk across the sand dunes to the sea, and along the shore to Waikawa Beach. The sand is flat and hard. There is parking by the bridge at the end of Waikawa Beach Road and access to the ocean is possible across the dunes or alongside the river.
It is about 3.7 km one way, allow about 60 minutes.
Car parking at the end of Waikawa Beach Road or Kuku Beach Road.
