Matauri Bay’s sheltered white sand beaches and crystal clear waters have long made this a favourite aquatic playground, popular for beachfront camping, swimming, snorkeling, water sports, horse trails, or just wandering along the beach. The rocks around Matauri Bay offer bountiful diving and fishing opportunities. On an easterly or south easterly swell at high tide, Matauri Bay can produce excellent surfing. There is safe launching for your boat to venture out to the Cavalli Islands, where the fishing and diving is world class.
