Waimarama is a superb long stretch of sandy beach south of Cape Kidnappers facing East to the rising sun and the Pacific Ocean. While it usually experiences large rolling surf, it is excellent for swimming, surfing, fishing and walking. It is a 25 minute drive from Havelock North through farmland on a sealed but at times winding road. The White House is positioned to maximise privacy, shelter, views and sun.

Black Barn Area Map


Obviously the main attraction is the beach. Waimarama is several kilometers long and is popular summer and winter. It has long stretches of private uninhabited areas and is wonderful for walking, jogging, surfcasting, fishing, surfing and swimming. Please note that Waimarama is a big rolling surf beach. It can experience undercurrents and dips and children should be supervised at all times. We would strongly advise swimming between the flags which are a very short distance from The White Beach House. There is a shop for very basic facilities at Waimarama.  There is also a small church and a vibrant Maori community at Waimarama. A full compendium to local restaurants and attractions will be in the retreat when you arrive, we also offer a wide range of activities that we are more than happy to arrange on your behalf. You can also view our compendium below.
