Titahi Bay Beach
Titahi Bay Beach is popular as a gently shelving sandy beach, one kilometre long, that’s great for children, picnics, joggers and (at certain times) dogs and horses. It often has a small surf that suits body-boards and stand-up paddle-boards. In a good northerly (on-shore) it can develop a respectable surf that attracts surfers and kite-surfers. There are changing rooms and toilets at each end and is patrolled by the Surf Life Saving Club.
It has historic boatsheds, beautiful views which include Mana and Kapiti Islands and the South Island, and a walkway with native vegetation and historic notes. The fossilised forest is sometimes visible, depending on the sand cover.
The water quality is tested weekly during the summer:
