Clear Water of Matai Bay and Karikari

The twin bays of Matai Bay, and the neighbouring Karikari beach is our favourite spot in Northland. Completely amazing, with warm clear waters, and soft sensual sand on Karikari. Out of this world.

Katrina cooking on the warm rocks... as we were sitting here, we saw a shark dorsal fin glide through the water nearby. Yep again, no swimming for a while!
