Seaside village with deep-water channel
The sealed road to Ti Point bursts into gravel for the last few kilometres before the hideaway of about 40 homes tucked into the little seaside village. There are several lifestyle blocks off the access road to Ti Point, some on the coastal side commanding prices of many millions. The homes in the village are a mixture of old, original baches, fishermens’ cottages and newer homes, some with stunning views overlooking the Whangateau Harbour, Omaha and Point Wells. The wharf is alongside a natural deep-water channel and is a popular place for charter boats and local boaties to load up before a great day out on the Hauraki Gulf, heading toward Little Barrier, Great Barrier, Kawau Island and other islands in close proximity. Parking by the wharf is very limited but there is a wonderful reserve along the foreshore that has a great walking track. Pohutukawa reach over the rocks and into the sea. The foreshore features a cliff-face above the water that was created by a volcanic eruption and is now a favoured destination with abseilers. The rocky foreshore is also a favourite spot for fishermen.
