Walk Sunset Beach Sun 20th Nov

Sunset Beach at Port Waikato Sun 20th Nov

6 black, 2 chocolate and 2 yellow labs plus various human tag alongs had a super long walk on a nearly deserted Sunset beach with a number staying for coffee afterwards at a lovely cafe, just across the car park, where well behaved dogs could sit with us in the garden.

Meet at 9.45am for a 10.00am start as it will be low tide then and better for the walk. The sands are black there, so kinder to the dog’s feet (and ours) before the sun gets too hot.

See flyer for full details.

Off to the beach again. It is Sunset Beach at Port Waikato and there is miles of beach
for the dogs to explore. For those who would like it is certainly good swimming and
popular with surfers.

It seems a long drive out but is only 30 minutes from Pokeno. Full directions below.
These walks are suitable for any healthy dog and owner of reasonable fitness but the
dogs must be over 10 months old and be under fairly good control.
Walking will be mostly on the beach so shoes can be worn or not as wished but
everyone will need towels for afterwards as the dogs will take full advantage of the
sea. It is also advisable to take some water for your dogs.
We love to see all the family on these walks and they are not exclusive to Labradors.

After the walk there is a delightful cafe which is dog friendly and allows them, with
owners, in the outside seating area and provides drinking bowls for them. This is very
close to the parking area.

Southern motorway to Pokeno.
At Pokeno take Pokeno Rd to Tuakau – this becomes Whangarata Rd.
Drive straight to the end – don’t go into Tuakau, and turn left to Port Waikato.
Go over a bridge and turn right where there is a sign to Waikato Holiday Camp.
Carry along this road until you see a sign which says Sunset Beach along with other
signs on the same post.
You will end up at a big parking area right by the sea we will meet there.
