Activities in Pauanui Beach

Steps-to-beachWhile on holiday you can choose to just relax, seek privacy and solitude. Pauanui is perfect for this. If you prefer, you can participate in some of the many activities that are organised in the area. There is so much to see and do in beautiful Pauanui; you won’t be disappointed with all the options.

There are eight playgrounds in Pauanui, there is a huge skate board bowl and a famous mini golf park. The kids will love it! For a small fee, holiday makers can play mini golf, bowls, astro turf tennis and choose between two nine hole golf courses or play golf at the professional 18 hole world class course at The Lakes Resort. At the airfield, you can book some awesome scenic flights. It’s yet another possibility for great family fun.

Pauanui has a lovely little shopping centre with a Four Square supermarket for all your necessities. There are boutiques, a café, restaurants and take away, real estate agencies, medical centre and a small community church.

The eye-catcher of the Pauanui Community Church is a gorgeous stained glass window that was donated by Mrs Edith Hopper. It reflects the physical beauty of the Coromandel Peninsula. Four denominations worship at the church: Anglican, Baptist, Catholic and Methodist/Presbyterian.

The beaches in the area are absolutely stunning and Pauanui surf is some of the best to be found in New Zealand. A Surf Lifesaving Club operates beach patrols over the summer months. There are also many great coastal walkways for you to follow in the area.


There are two boat ramps, as boating is one of the most popular activities here. Other types of water fun are swimming, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing, wind surfing, jet-skiing and fishing. You can take your boat out or get the water taxi to visit nearby Slipper Island. This magnificent privately owned island is a great place to relax in privacy or to go (wreck) diving, snorkeling, fishing or walking. And in the summer months, the ferry between Pauanui and Tairua operates every hour.

You will find some great parks and reserves in the Pauanui area that offer wonderful walks and fitness trails, running, climbing and tramping options. The land is quite flat, which makes it ideal for recreational cycling and mountain biking.
