Homunga Bay is notable for dense pohutukawa forest, beauty and seclusion.
It can be reached by a track from the northern end of Orokawa Bay. This track is well-developed and maintained providing spectacular views and interesting terrain. Caution, good footwear, water and a daypack are essential.
Another option for this walk is to start at Ngatitiangata Road (above Homunga Bay) and walk down the hills down to the coast, via Orokawa Bay to exit at Waihi Beach.
If you decide to start and return at Ngatitiangata Road, please be aware the path is a long, steep climb. Walkers should allow 3 hours from Waihi Beach to Homunga Bay, 1.5 hours from Orokawa Bay to Homunga Bay or 45-60 minutes between Homunga Bay and Ngatitangata Road.
