Known to hardcore surfers as one of the best surfing spots in the country, Great Barrier Island is truly an unspoiled paradise for those who like to go to the breaks with the fewest people. Whangapoua is known to few surfers, and the ones that do know about it, keep it a secret. Approximately 20 minutes from Orama lies one of the best right hand breaks in the country. Further afield is Awana. A short, steep breaking beach, it can be tumultuous, but a lot of fun, too! Grab your board, head to the Barrier and enjoy. Transport can be arranged daily from Orama.
