Kuoatunu Reef in The Coromandel is a reasonably exposed beach and reef break Works best in offshore winds from the south with some shelter here from southeast winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the north northeast. Waves at the beach tend to peel to the left and there is a right hand reef break as well. Best around mid tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Hazards include - Rocks.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
