Right at the western end of Tauranga harbour lies the second entrance in the harbour to the Pacific.
Bowentown is situated at the western side of this entrance.
It has been many years since Rob and I have made a visit and it was well worth it. Such a beautiful spot and a great place for a beach holiday it seems.
Unlike some of the more overly populated and commercialised northern Coromandel holiday destinations, Bowentown to us, had a vibe more like old NZ summer holiday spots.
Rob with Karewa Is and the tip of the Mt just visible. This is the entrance.
88m climb to the top of Pa Head
C'mon old girl...
The entrance bar and Matakana Island pine forest
A good surf
Active and dangerous bar with Mayor Is on the horizon
Happy to be at the top
Great place to fly the drone apparently
