Stay cool and chill out in Mapua with a walk from Grossi Point (at the end of Tahi Street) round the beach at low and mid tide to the village (or the other way of course!). A favourite with dog walkers as the low tide delivers lots of good sniffs to the tideline.
Or, if you get the outgoing tide right (it needs to be racing out), you can float round at quite a lick without swimming a stroke and step ashore at Mapua or the Campground a little further on. The tide just delivers you to the shore – it’s lazy and exhilarating at the same time to be whipping along while just laying there!
