Bennett's of Mangawhai - definitely get one of their chocolate drinks (if you order a mocha or hot chocolate they will give you a block of chocolate on a stick to stir in YUM).
Golf Club lookout - If you are after a good view of Mangawhai estuary, there is a cool little look out at the golf club, it is only about a 5 minute walk up some stairs.
Mangawhai Heads Surf Beach - one of the most beautiful beaches ever!!
For those of you who don't know I live in Mangawhai! Some of my friends came to visit on the weekend and I showed them 'a typical day in Mangawhai.' It was so much fun!!
I will post more about Magical Mangawhai living sometime!! xo
