Information

Harataonga is a sandy bay located on the northeast coast of the island, and is a must visit on your trip to the island. The bay is sheltered by Dragon Island providing a perfect spot for swimming and snorkelling. Either end of the beach has rock outcrops suitable for rock fishing.

There is a DOC campground located before the beach. You can park by the campground, head down through the gates on the right, or through the DOC campground, over the estuary to reach the beach.

This is also the start of the Harataonga to Whangapoua coastal walkway.
