Description: 

Mahia South East Coast is a long stretch of coast line featuring many beach breaks and the odd point break. The coast is mostly sandy beaches with rocky points. Mahia South East Coast is fairly remote, with many breaks requiring a walk in, but you will find beaches all to yourself. The waves are often punchy and powerful. Mahia South East Coast is very exposed, so usually has good swell but also gets strong on shore winds, so pick your day by viewing other reports for the surrounding area. Suitable for all levels of surfer.
