Rated as one of the top coastal destinations on the planet by 'National Geographic'

Our lodge is located overlooking the stunning village of Ngunguru, with expansive ocean views over the sandspit and estuary. Out private character property boasts 5 bedrooms, sleeping 12 comfortably with 4.5 bathrooms. There are a number of large outside areas to relax, unwind and have a table tennis game or two. Sleeping options are as follows:

  • Queen with ensuite

  • Queen

  • Twin

  • Bunkroom with timber beds, sleeps 4

  • King with ensuite (for host but can become available)


Tutukaka Coast beaches are among the most spectacular in Northland, and New Zealand. There are so many breathtaking beaches to choose from, each with individual character and beauty. We're lucky to have four beaches close by to choose from when surfing; Sandy Bay, Wooleys Bay, Matapouri and Ngunguru Sandspit. We'll decide which beaches to surf after a thorough wave-check the evening before.


The Coast offers walkers and coastal scenery lovers an extensive range of picturesque and world-class short to long walks. The panoramic scenery is breathtaking, with pristine beaches being often secluded and the surrounding native New Zealand bush superb. Whether you have 5 minutes or several hours available, there is a walkway for you on the Tutukaka Coast.

Surfing yoga retreat

What is included?

Friday - Arrive after 3pm

You will be briefed over the exciting plans for the few days to come and chat about the wave conditions. Get settled in with a night of socializing and a healthy, delicious dinner.

Saturday - Fun-filled day

After a good breakfast we'll head to the beach for the day. You'll enjoy two surf lessons with a picnic lunch in-between to recharge. Late afternoon/early evening you'll have the chance to relax or go for a walk before having dinner. After which you can watch a surf movie, play some games or just chill. 

Sunday - Yoga & Surf

We'll start the day with some yoga to clear the mind and recenter, before hitting the beach and testing out your new love of surfing. After a picnic lunch, sadly the weekend is over.

Everyone will receive a goodie bag to remember your time with us here at NZ Surf Academy.


This rough plan is totally dependent on weather and waves. We have 4 beaches close by and a couple more slightly further away so we can seek out the best surf in any condition. As we always say, if it’s raining and we are surfing, you’re going to get wet anyway!

Indulge in delicious and healthy vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinners.

We’ll be staying in a private lodge and you’re just a few minutes drive (or walk) from many beaches.
