Welcome to 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.

Nau mai, Haere mai! Come and explore this beautiful environment! 

Pukehina Ratepayers and Residents Association (PRRA)

In Pukehina we have a Ratepayers and Residents Association (PRRA) with a committee elected each year at an AGM. 

This Association has been going for more than 30 years! 
As a Committee we maintain this website, communicate local government matters to the community, and present the communities desires and concerns back.  We advocate for this special place in the Western Bay of Plenty.

We'd love more people to become members of the Association so together we can continue to enhance and improve the facilities and environment that we all cherish.  Think about signing up or joining the Committee or a project team!
