Pohara is one of the main holiday centres of the Bay with a beach that must rank among New Zealand’s safest. It is also a popular centre for windsurfing and kayaking. Hire equipment is available for those who forgot their own. Every standard of accommodation is available (book early!) from a large camping ground right on the beach to motels, cottages and B&Bs. For the sports enthusiast the golf club, tennis courts and bowling club are all located here. Dances and other entertainment are held at the Pohara Hall throughout the festive season and each year Pohara Beach Holiday Park organises the hilarious Beach Horse Races which always brings out a crowd of locals and visitors alike.

Enjoy the scenic drive along the coastline from Pohara to Ligar Bay and beyond. The beach-side road crawls beneath rugged limestone cliffs covered in part with remnants of original native forest. See the summer flowering rata trees but please, once you have passed the appropriately named cafe, watch out for penguins crossing the road. You could see them anywhere for the next few kilometres.
