Waipiro Bay

Divert from SH 35
Te Puia Springs, Gisborne
Waipiro Bay is a surf beach and a 'freedom camping' site.

Once it was significant for more than leisure activities. A hundred years ago, before the main road bypassed the town in the 1920's, it was the largest settlement and centre of administration for the East Coast and a place where wool was shipped out in surf boats and sheep, horses and cattle brought ashore.

There is fairly consistent surf from an exposed beach and a point break at the southern end.

Near to the sea is the Iritekura Marae of the Whana-a-Iritekura, a hapu of the Ngati Porou. It has a fully carved meeting house.

(note: a permit is required for freedom camping)
