Torbay Cliff Walk
From Tipau Point, the North Shore Coastal Walk follows the rocky coast line below the cliffs to Torbay and Waiake Beach. The cliffs provide their own interest but there is a bonus yacht wreck about halfway to the beach.
This is also a good walk for rock pools as the tide goes out and you can find interesting, often orange to red rocks. There was also a fair bit of sea glass in the sandier sections, if you like collecting such things.
