More About Bream Bay
Bream Bay is an area approximately 30km south of Whangarei and takes in the coastal settlements of Ruakaka, One Tree Point, Waipu, Marsden Point and Takahiwai. The areas magnificent expanse of white sand coastline includes the fabulous beaches of Langs Beach, Waipu Cove, Uretiti and Ruakaka. All just 30 minutes south of Whangarei city they provide great swimming, surfing, sunbathing, fishing and surf casting.
The area is characterised by miles of white sandy beaches, tranquil scenery, walking tracks, native bush, waterfalls, caves, rural vistas and the quaint village of Waipu. Bream Bay beaches vary from the wide open spaces of Ruakaka and Uretiti to Waipu Cove, which has a much more village like feel with shops nearby, is ideal for surfers and families and is patrolled in season. Langs Beach is another favourite with a beautiful safe swimming beach lined with native pohutakawa trees.
Bream Bay is circled by a series of majestic peaks including The Hen and Chicken Islands, offshore to the East, which are in fact long dead volcanoes, part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Commonly referred to by locals as “The Hen and Chicks”, these islands were made a scenic reserve in 1908 due to the rarity of the flora and fauna that reside there. In 1953 the islands became a wildlife refuge and are noted for their bird life with colonies of shearwaters, petrel and forest birds which are now either scarce or extinct on the mainland.
The weather in the area, like Whangarei, is subtropical with very few frosts. Summer days range from 20-26°C and rarely exceed 30°C. With plentiful rainfall throughout the year the area truly lives up to the reputation of “the winterless north”. The relaxed mood of Bream Bay is a by-product of the beautiful environment and the sunny climate.
