It is not a buzzing holiday area except over Xmas holidays and long holiday weekends-Walks, hiking, mountian biking, surfing, swimming, diving , boating , fishing, snorkeling, paddle board hire, estuary river, kayaks, deep-sea and coastal fishing, trips to world class marine reserve at Poor Knights Island . A car is really necessary unless you intend just to stay at the beach for the weekend ..There is a daily Shuttle Service from the Airport and from Whangarei and on request...Only a small local convenience store at Matapouri with more shops at Tutukaka Marina 10 min away
