Doubtless Bay

Doubtless Bay

Doubtless Bay in Northland is about 20 kms wide and has a number of beautiful beaches, although they are mostly surrounded by holiday homes. The ones to the southeast are especially pretty – Coopers Beach, Cable Bay and Taipa Bay, from east to west.

Cable Bay is especially attractive due to the amazing colour of its sand – an extraordinarily rich red/orange colour – and it is worth stopping just to see this. It is also a sheltered safe swimming bay with stunning coastal surroundings.

This entire area feels quite compact and civilisation in the form of shops, cafes and restaurants is close by. A good place for a break prior to the final stage north to Cape Reinga.

Thanks to Jan Rozek for providing the photos.
