Pacific Bay is the next bay past Kowharewa Bay just south of Tutukaka. It's a small beachfront community where self-contained motor caravanners can park overnight.

 

It's a really nice, quiet, sheltered location - good for fishing or just enjoying a typical Northland beachfront community. If you have a kayak, then you can paddle around to Kawharewa bay.
