The walk between the Park and the waterfall follows the Hatea River. There are many picnic spots and fresh water swimming holes. This is an easy walk, with some short steep climbs, that is suitable for all ages and it is a popular running track for many locals.

Idyllic white sand, bush fringed beach. Walking access only from either the car park on Matapouri Road (30 mins round trip), through groves of ancient Puriri trees or via Matapouri Bay (40 mins one way). Great for swimming, snorkelling and picnics. Basic toilets and well maintained pathways. No direct road access is available so you need to park at the top of the hill on Matapouri Road.
