3 minutes walk from the house, Houghton Bay is a well known surf beach and picks up all the Southern ocean swell on offer. It is fickle as far as quality surf is concerned but when its on can produce some really nice waves. Swimmers or beginner surfers should take extreme care, the beach drops off quickly and there can be strong rips. There is no lifeguard. The snorkelling can be spectacular here when conditions are right. Its part of the Taputeranga Marine Reserve and its common to see big fish, Paua (abalone) and Crayfish (lobster) with out getting your feet wet.

Houghton Bay is smack in the middle of this marine reserve. Established in 2009 it is now teaming with sea life. If the surf is low and the water clear you can see abundant fish, lobster and Paua (abalone) in shallow water with a snorkel or even in the rock pools.

Enjoy great views and sunsets at this popular sheltered beach, 10minutes walk from The Studio. As part of the marine reserve the sea life can be amazing here, right in the shallows. The Blue Cod can get large and are very friendly, so watch your toes! Swimming is safer here than Houghton Bay, though there is no life guard.
