Complimentary snorkelling gear and kayaks enable you to take advantage of the sea scape that’s quite literally on your doorstep.

There are a host of other beautiful beaches within 10 minutes drive such as Tauranga Bay, Te Ngaere, Wainui, Mahinepua and Matauri Bay. Surfers will enjoy Takou Bay (a 30 minute drive) or Ahipara (less than an hour away).
A very popular activity available nearby is the great choice of coastal walks and plenty of great sightseeing within an easy drive such as Whangaroa, Mangonui, Kerikeri, Bay of Islands and Cape Reinga.

Mangonui, Kerikeri & Paihia all offer shopping, sight seeing and dining choices.

Kauri Cliffs Golf Course

We are ideally situated for a visit to the renowned Kauri Cliffs golf course for a challenging round of golf or two.

Kauri Cliffs is located just a scenic 15 minutes drive from Crab Cove so you can plan a few days of golf along with the beachside relaxation of Crab Cove as the perfect golfers retreat.

Other golf courses within an hours drive from Crab Cove are in Kerikeri at the Bay of Islands golf club or north on Karikari Peninsula at Carrington Resort.

Other things we can arrange are:

We have returned – this time to perfect weather. Enjoyed kayaking the coves and the peace…no cellphones, no TV, no children – what a bliss!…and dolphins on our final morning.
