Hidden from view along S.H. 2 only the sign at the intersection announces what lies beyond the avocado and kiwifruit orchards and hedgerows. The 10 minute drive from Bethlehem is long enough to leave the cares of busyness and business behind, but not out of reach.
The Omokoroa peninsula places you within Tauranga harbour, and access to its bounty, while forming a natural boundary for the community giving a strong sense of identity and belonging.

There are coastal walkways around most of the peninsula linking public reserves. Enjoy great views of the harbour and Matakana Island from the 2 hectare historic Gerald Crapp Reserve.
