What do you do when you worked all weekend and have nothing better to do on a Monday. You head to the beach. The older kids were at school, so it was just me and the little guy. Fortunately my lovely long time friend was free to be picked up on the way.
This my friends is Ocean Beach. Today the water was stunningly clear, with the bluest water. And on a Monday the beach was practically empty.
A beautiful 35minute coastal drive from the city, Ocean beach is one of Whangarei’s favourite surf beaches.
We are so spoilt for choice in here. It takes about 30-50 minutes to get to several lovely beaches. You can choose the Tutukaka Coast or the Whangarei heads. Want a nice calm beach you go to Whale Bay. Keen for some waves keep driving until you hit Sandy Bay. Or you could head South and drive to Ruakaka or Waipu.
We are so blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the country and I better make the most of it this summer!
