About Tutukaka Coast
Ngunguru is the first seaside settlement travellers discover when they leave Whangarei City travelling east – a distance of 26 km.
On from Ngunguru is Tutukaka Harbour, Matapouri Bay, Whale Bay, Woolleys Bay and Sandy Bay which all form what is known as the Tutukaka Coast Area – 10 kilometres of beautiful beaches – see pictures below or view a four-minute video.
