Mahanga is a white sandy beach, great for walking, collecting shells and beach fishing. It is possible to walk around to Oraka Beach but you would need to be aware of the tides. There are several streams here which do have whitebait in them. Remember that this is a seasonal fishery. At Mahanga Beach there are public toilets and off road parking. If you continue past the settlement turnoff you will come to Lake Rotopounamu about 13kms further along the road.
This lake is good for swimming and small boats.
To reach Mahanga Beach, take SH 2 towards Gisborne. At Nuhaka, continue straight ahead towards Opoutama. At Opoutama continue straight ahead on the sealed road.
