Foxton and the Beach

things-to-do-wider-foxton-photo.jpg

Overview

Come and discover the new Foxton of old. Visit a welcoming town where heritage and the environment are preserved, as the foundations for an exciting, dynamic, diverse new future.

Just turn off State Highway 1, and you’ve landed in history.

Have a play

Spend some hours among the quaint shops and classy cafés, or get active! Go wake boarding, surfing or paddle boarding – in the river or the waves at Foxton Beach. The bird watching in the Manawatū Estuary has Ramsar World Heritage status with its unique environment.

Bring your bikes or a boogie-board. Have a play with the kids on the award-winning Pump Track, or let them splash into the sea.

Taste classic Kiwi takeaways, innovative cuisine, or our country’s best wines and craft beers in beachy settings. There’s lots of fizz happening in Foxton.
