Raeakiaki Point

Raeakiaki Point

Raeakiaki Point is at the south end of Bethells Beach Te Henga and separates Bethells from Wigmore Bay. It takes about 20 minutes to walk down to the point from the surf club observation building. As the tide goes out, you can access the sea cave at the beach end of the point and then get onto the rocky platform that runs around the base of the cliff to the far side of the Point. From there it is a modest amount of clambering down the rocks to the beach at Wigmore.

The Point is inherently interesting with rock pools and great views to the north and south. As you round the Point, there is an interesting small island with an upward-jutting rock formation that changes shape dramatically depending on the angle from which you view it.
