The locality of Marsden Cove makes it perfect for the whole family, especially for those boating enthusiasts that love fishing, diving and cruising.

Boaties don’t have to travel too far to reach bountiful fishing, game fishing and diving grounds, all within a short distance. The Whangarei Harbour has been known for its fantastic fishing as well as further out to the Hen and Chicken Islands. Further up the coast is a divers dream at the magnificent Poor Knights Marine Reserve.

There are also many beautiful white sandy beaches ready for exploring along the Tutukaka coast and Bream Bay area. Take a short drive south will take you to the vast and beautiful white sand beach of Ruakaka, and a little further south will lead you to the historic and quaint village of Waipu.

The city of Whangarei is only a 25 minute drive north, where there is an abundance of supermarkets, eateries, clothing retail, marine services and much more.
