21Jul07 Wattle Bay on the Manakau

Wattle Bay is almost the last bay where you can stay at the top of the Awhitu Peninsular before hitting the actual entrance to the Manakau Harbour. To get there turn left just before finally arriving at Orua Bay where there's a substantial camping ground.We’ve been to Wattle Bay a couple of times now as it’s only a short trip from Auckland and quite suitable for a single over night stay. Each time we manage to explore a little further still seeking that elusive fishing spot that will produce.An inner Manakau Harbour beach that whilst exhibiting some West Coast qualities remains relatively calm unless the weather drives from the North and East.It’s one of those places where you never know what’s going to happen next. Check this out, miles from anywhere.From here a visit to the Manakau Heads and the Lighthouse is a must. See a previous blog - Awhitu Big Bay.
