In the Bream Bay Region you will find Langs Beach on the coastal road between Waipu and Mangawhai. Fabulous unspoiled golden sands, surf, views out to sea of Whangarei Heads and the Hen & Chicken Islands.
A popular place for Northlanders and Aucklanders. People come to Langs to enjoy the great swimming conditions, stunning views and the line of Pohutakawa trees that offer great shade for those sizzling summer days.
Waipu is the nearest township, a friendly coastal town with a Scottish heart.
Waipu was the centre of a significant Presbyterian settlement led by Rev. Norman McLeod, a Presbyterian Minister who led his people from the Highlands of Scotland to New Zealand via Pictou and St. Ann’s in Nova Scotia and Australia. Five shiploads containing over 800 settlers arrived at Waipu in the 1850s.
