Pukehina Beach

Welcome to paradise

Pukehina beach is a small, friendly, 41 hectare, north-east facing beach area on the East Coast of the Bay of Plenty, surrounded by rural communities.

It is bordered by the crystal clear rolling surf beach, glittering sands, with an estuary harbour and boat ramp allowing boat access over the bar to the open sea.It is one of New Zealand’s few unspoiled beaches, with an unbeatable, relaxed, lifestyle.

People choose to live and holiday here because of its convenient location and beautiful environment.

There are several parks and reserves with playground equipment and toilet facilities.
The meaning behind “Pukehina”: Puke = hill. Hina = small tree ‘melicytus ramiiflours’ – Mahoe or Whitewood.
