Awana beach was discovered and was infamous in the surfing circles in the 1960s and 70s for the barrels and untouched beauty. Awana is a central location but feels miles away. Claris shops, cafes and necessities as well as the airport are just a 12 minute or so drive away. The area only has a very small population and the scenery from the sites are special - looking out to distant hills, lifestyle land and NZ bush; birdlife galore. The site has a Westerly aspect so perfect for sitting and watching the sunset. The section is literally across the road from the beach and is one of two sections available side by side: No. 117 approximately 814.96 sq m and No. 119 approximately 805.7 sq m. The gradient is sloping and would suit a type of pole house. A good example of what you could build is a bach down the road.
Although predominantly a surfie beach there is also a serene side and a little lagoon/estuary which is perfect for children. Get back on the board, back in the swim - go back to basics to clear your head in this stress free environment where nothing has changed over time; how refreshing. The islanders love these natural assets and so do visitors from the world. Invest in some land - elevated and sunshine to warm you. This is a place of the past, now and for your future: beautiful, raw, untouched and unpopulated. There are a few baches already built nearby - young guys have seized the opportunity and built their bach and ready to share with future generations teaching their youngsters the skills of swimming, surfcasting, kayaking, how to read the water and the weather; good old fashioned fun that is intrinsic, no game boys needed here this is real life Xbox.
Great Barrier Island is just like Waiheke used to be; affordable, quiet, peaceful, unpopulated - with the world discovering it at a rapid rate and anything walking distance to a north side pristine beach will start being snapped up. Call the Rokes directly to view.
