The wind-swept north-eastern coast is a historically significant part of the Kaingaroa area. The one-way Okawa walk begins at Okawa Point, ending at Mission Bay. The Point Munning seal colony is located a further 2km from Mission Bay. The Okawa walk crosses pasture land, goes along the beach and takes in the rocky Okawa and Mission bays. Classed as an easy to moderate walking track it takes approximately 5 hours.
