Pikarere Beach is a hidden inlet off Open Bay, just 5 kilometres from Porirua’s city centre.

Access to the beach is from Pikarere Street. It requires walking a short distance (or via four-wheel-drive vehicles) over private farmland.

The beach is a mixture of rocks and sand with plenty of driftwood. Rolling hills surround the beach, making for a sheltered spot. On a fine day, the water is calm and clear.

If you explore the coastline, you will come across a small waterfall. Pikarere Farm and Pikarere Forest are nearby.
