Arguably the most famous spot in Raglan, Manu Bay was featured in the much-loved surfer movie The Endless Summer. It is also the venue for many international surfing competitions due to long, consistent and accessible breaks. A huge attraction for surfers, the place is also appreciated by visitors of all ages and interests. Amazingly beautiful and rich in vegetation, the Manu Bay is perfect for boating, fishing or a peaceful walk on the beach.

  • The currents are strong in the bay and beginners are not advised to surf here.

  • Since Manu Bay is serviced by just one bus, it is highly recommended that you hire a taxi from Raglan Taxi or a shuttle from Raglan Shuttles, in case your hotel does not provide a fee shuttle service.

  • Although the place has a good scattering of beach shops, the closest restaurants are in Raglan, just 4 miles away.
