Tokerau Beach is a small settlement on the Karikari Peninsula in Northland, just north of Doubtless Bay. It’s about thirty kilometres from Kaitaia.
Tokerau Beach is fourteen kilometres long, one of Karikari Peninsula’s two ocean beaches. It’s a golden sand beach where you can gather shellfish such as tuatuas with just a spade and a bucket. The exposure of the beach makes it popular for land yachting and kite-surfing.
The area is also a playground for big game fishers. On one of the areas many fishing charters you can expect to encounter marlin, yellow-fin tuna and yellow-tail kingfish.
Tours depart every day from Tokerau Beach headed for Ninety Mile Beach and Cape Reinga, the northernmost point of New Zealand and the location of an historic lighthouse.
Just west of Tokerau Beach is Gumdiggers Park, where you can see the holes the gum-diggers left and the remains of ancient kauri forest.
