Cooks Beach with Lonely Bay in the foregroud

Lonely Bay with Cooks Beach in the background

Visit us at historical Cooks Beach!
This long sandy beach which caught Capt Cook's eye is an ideal place to unwind and explore beautiful Mercury Bay! Cooks Beach is flanked by Shakespeare Cliff to the west and sheltered and picturesque Purangi Estuary to the east.

The area boasts some of New Zealand's oldest history - Capt James Cook sailed on the HMS Endeavour into Mercury Bay in 1769 and made anchor at Cooks Beach off Purangi.

...beautiful Flaxmill Bay - just a short wlak away

Picturesque Flaxmill Bay

Located between Cooks Beach and Ferry Landing are the sheltered and white, sandy beaches of Front Beach & Flaxmill Bay providing a captivating walk along the water's edge to Shakespeare Reserve. The walking track takes you through New Zealand native bush to a vantage point with panoramic views of Mercury Bay and where you can view the Cook Memorial.

A highlight of the walk is the walk down to beautiful Lonely Bay - an artist's dream - with its white sand of crushed shells and enormous limestone boulders!
