Waipu is known for its position on the beautiful Bream Bay coastline. A few kilometres North of the village is Uretiti Beach, particularly popular for fishing and where surprisingly you can often find you have the beach to yourself!
South of the Waipu river mouth is Waipu Cove, a great place for kids, picnics swimming and surfing. A short stroll over the hill takes you to the more private Shelly Beach.
Waipu Cove is the start of the Waipu to Langs Beach Clifftop Walk, via Dings Bay and the breathtaking pancake rocks. You can paddle a kayak from the Waipu Boat Club out towards Jacksons Point, a great place for bird watching.
If you prefer bush to beach, you can venture inland to Piroa Falls on the north side of the Brynderwyns or experience our world famous glow worm caves.
Along with being blessed with breathtaking natural scenery, Waipu is also a town of culture and historic significance. A visit to the UNESCO heritage listed Waipu Museum is a must do.
