The Waitarere Beach community includes a well-stocked Four Square Store, takeaways, café and restaurant. Levin, the nearest town, is 10 minute's easy drive should you need something more.
Waitarere Beach is wide and sandy, allowing plenty
of room for all your favourite beach activities including land yachts,
four-wheel motor bikes, surfing and fishing. The beach slowly drops off
into deep water so there's plenty of safe paddling space for the
youngsters, and during the summer months the surf club set up patrol.
Waitarere Beach is also a popular fishing spot where
Kahawai, Snapper, Groper, Gurnard, Flounder and Sole are the most
common catches. The large, flat beach is ideal to back your boat into
with a tractor or a four-wheel drive. During the Whitebait season you
can find a spot to sit your net at the Manawatu or the Ohau river
