Mahia Peninsula Road Trip Top 6

Surrounded by crystal clear waters which break onto a mix of black and white sand and rocky beaches, Mahia is one of New Zealand’s summer paradises. So, what are some of the Mahia must-dos?

Whatever you decide, you’ll have incredible memories and a camera full of shots from your weekend away.


Start with a Scenic Drive along Kinikini Road

A road trip to Mahia wouldn’t be complete without driving down Kinikini Road. Enjoy epic views of the cliffs, valleys and Peninsula itself – there are almost too many photo opportunities! Note: Kinikini Road is winding and unsealed.


Mahia Seaside Markets

While the next market won’t be until Easter, it’s worth the trip to enjoy the range of stalls offering local produce, baking, arts and crafts, jewellery and more. Full details at

Location: Off Pohutukawa Street on the waterfront or, if wet, at Mokotahi Hall in Mahia Beach.


Lunch at the Beach Cafe

With its classic surf, sand and road trip theme the Beah Café is the perfect stop for travellers. From pizzas named after local surf breaks to some of the best fish n’ chips, coffee, cakes and more!

Location: 43 Moana Drive, Mahia Beach.


Mahanga Beach

Mahia has many stunning beaches but we think Mahanga Beach is something special about it.  Unwind with a walk or just enjoy and relax. Feeling active?  Its great for surfing, boogie boarding and swimming.

Location: Mahanga Road


Coronation Reserve

Make time for the stunning, historical Coronation Reserve. From its majestic rocky outcrops to its secluded sandy beaches and rock pools, ready for exploring, there is a little something for everyone.

Location: South of the boat ramp at Whangawehi, along the Mahia East Coast Road.


Morere Springs

When you’re leaving the Peninsula, make sure to stop in at Morere for a dip in the hot pools.  Let the hot mineral pools wash over you or take a gentle 20 minute stroll through the nikau palm forest.

Location: When leaving Mahia Peninsula, turn right into SH 2 and travel about 9km to Morere.

Volkswagen Tiguan

Our top picks for Hawke’s Bay family roadtrips

The Hawke’s Bay is paradise for foodies, wine connoisseurs and nature lovers. We’ve put together our top 5 picks when it comes to roadtrips that tick all these boxes, while keeping the kids happy. Driving the spacious 7-seater VW Tiguan means you have plenty of room to bring all the family (and their friends) along with you.


Te Mata Peak

You couldn’t plan a visit to the Hawke’s Bay without a visit to this iconic landmark. It’s a drive of only a few minutes from Napier and the hill climb will let you put the power of the VW Tiguan engine to the test. Enjoy the panoramic views of the Hawke’s Bay and, if the kids are restless, try out one of the spectacular walks – just remember to come well prepared for the elements.


Craggy Range

Handily located at the foot of Te Mata Peak, Craggy Range offers the complete wine and vineyard experience. Head to their Cellar Door for wine tasting, while the delectable meals at their acclaimed restaurant will keep all the family happy. You can even extend your stay by booking one of their boutique vineyard cottages, although their luxury lodge has to be our pick.


Cape Kidnappers

The gannets at Cape Kidnappers are renowned for good reason. Head out along the coast and enjoy spectacular views on your way, while hearing the engine purr. There are tour options galore (even tractor rides) where you’ll have (literally) a bird’s-eye view over this amazing colony. May we suggest making the most of the location with a spot of golf at the nearby and internationally renowned Cape Kidnapper’s course.


Tolaga Bay

Dream drives don’t come much better than the journey to Tolaga Bay. Home to New Zealand’s longest wharf, the VW Tiguan will handle this back-country route with ease. When you’re driving in a remote area, its safety record gives you all the reassurance you need. Keep the kids happy with a stop at a local dairy for a classic Kiwi lolly mix (or two).


Sileni Estate

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to vineyards in the Hawke’s Bay, and another one of our top picks would be Sileni Estate. The kids can learn about the art of winemaking on one of their highly-rated tours, followed by one of their delectable cheeseboards afterwards. We sing the vineyard’s praises far and wide so you may well find the carpark full of vehicles from EuroCity.
