Kaiatea Rd joins Matapouri Rd at the end, which is the main road along the Tutukaka Coast. Pretty hilly too, but not as much as Kaiatea Rd.
There is a big hotel and marina in Tutukaka itself, but it looked a bit deserted, in spite of all the boats in the harbor.
The shops in the hotel and nearby restaurants were empty too. Great place.
About a four hour ride...
including lots of stops and little detours for picture taking.
The Poor Knights Islands on the horizon - apparently a popular destination for boats in Tutukaka harbor.
