Cudlip Point Loop Track
Mahurangi West Regional Park
57km from Auckland CBD
1 Hour return
Dogs: Yes on lead (but not on Te Muri beach)
Mahurangi West is the perfect spot to park up on a nice summers day, with ample beach and calm waters. The Cudlip Point Loop track itself offers lovely views across the harbour, the opportunity to get up close to shell as well as spots to swim at both ends - so togs are a must.
The track itself is an easy grade meander, start at the souther end of the carpark and follow the red markers up the hill. The track leads across open pastures up to Cudlip Point and down to the foreshore where birds roost on the rocks and gather food from the mud flats at low tide. If you go at low tide (or you’re not afraid to get you feet wet, you can cross the stream a stroll up Te Muring beach before making your way beach to the car park.
