Fishing at Muriwai


Hardy souls fishing at Muriwai , their reward a small  snapper, it is a beautiful if dangerous location.

Sadly two people lost their lives this month fishing here, fishermen are recommended to wear a life jacket, few do.

Waitawa Regional Park


Situated east of Clevedon and about one hour in the off peak from the Auckland CBD is the Waitawa Regional Park.




There is a long sandy beach with some picnic tables, at least one BBQ and good changing rooms etc. There are amazing views out towards the Coromandel from the road leading into the park.


Wharf very popular with fishermen, a five minute stroll from the carpark.


Coromandel off in the distance (below right)  about 25km across the water.
