Wainui Beach, Gisborne

Wainui Beach is a small settlement on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand, located some 6kms to the north east of Gisborne. Wainui’s crystal clear waters attract surfers from all over the world. It is also great for swimming, sunbathing, surfcasting, jogging or just walking, the beach itself is a 4km crescent of golden sand with rocky headlands at both ends. 

At the south end of the beach is Tuahine Point with its derelict lighthouse,  making it an adventurous walk around the rocks. To the north is the Wainui-Makarori headland which has a walkway up to stunning views over Wainui and the neighbouring Makarori Beach.

At the centre of the beach known as “The Pines”, is the local Wainui Surf Club which patrols the swimming area during summer.
