Urutiti Beach, a 20-kilometer long white sand beach (with camping) borders the magnificent sweep of Bream Bay, so named by Captain Cook. Waipu, the main town in the area, was settled by Scottish immigrants 140 years ago. Each summer the town hosts Highland games. Marsden Point to the north is New Zealand's largest oil refinery (see the visitor center). Ruakaka has some good caf├ęs and restaurants. The rugged coast road out to Mangawhai Heads is worth driving. Then return to the main road via Kaiwaka, where you should stop at the Dutch Mill shop for coffee and home-made cheeses.
