Split Apple beach is just a 2 minute stroll, using the rustic steps under the house and down to our private woodland track where you can surround yourself in the tranquil native bush. Good shoes are reccommended and look out for tree roots and low branches.

The beach area is a quiet cove with golden and black sand, azure waters ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The beach is a treasure trove for children, with rocks and coves to explore.  The water is reasonably safe with only very gentle currents, however there is motor boat activity and kayaks visiting the cove.

For the fishing enthusiast, you can enjoy surf casting or a dabble off the rocks.  There will be brief visits to the cove by local charter and water transports, as well as the entertaining Waka tours and inquisitive kayakers.

We love the opportunity to orchestrate a wedding or significant event at Split Apple Beach.  For further information do get in touch. we have part and full wedding & event packages to consider.
