Snell's Beach, Algies Bay, Martins Bay, Scotts Landing & Scandrett Regional Park
Exceptional scenery and beautiful sandy beaches
Mahurangi East includes the seaside villages of Brick Bay, Snells Beach, Algies Bay, Scott's Landing, Martins Bay and the Scandrett Regional Park.
The coastline of Mahurangi East offers a variety of sightseeing options - a stunning outdoor sculpture trail at Brick Bay, a brilliant walkway from Brick Bay to Snells Beach, which showcase ancient pohutakawa trees at the southern end of the walkway, the Donkey Sanctuary at Highfield Garden Reserve and an Oyster Farm Tour.
At the end of the peninsula lies Scandrett Regional Park, which was brought from the Auckland Regional Council in 1998 from the Scandrett family, who had worked on it for 130 years. The original homestead and farm buildings have all been restored. The land was the site of early shipbuilding before it was turned to farming. The Regional Park offers some fantastic walkways which provides you with coastal views out towards Kawau Island from Mullet Point. Mullet Point was renowned for its fishing to local Maori and there are a number of historic settlement areas, including two pa sites.
Also situated at the end of the Peninsula is Martins Bay. Martins Bay is a beautiful, safe sandy beach with all-tide swimming and plenty of shade from the enormous pohutakawa trees. Right beside the beach is Martins Bay Holiday Park - which has a range of accommodation from tent sites to cabins, a great boat ramp and a water-ski lane at the northern end of the bay.
The Mahurangi Regional Park reaches from the south-east across the bay to encompass Scott's Landing and the Scott Homestead. It used to be a hotel and boarding house in the mid-1800s, at the centre of a shipbuilding business. The homestead has been beautifully restored, and the grassy grounds are prefect for a picnic. Paddle, swim, or at low tide, walk out to pretty Casnell Island offshore. At Scott's Landing you can also join the Oyster Farm tours.For further information:
