Marfells Beach is an open beach that gets quite exposed to the wind. Its a beach break on a sandy beach, with several peaks down the beach, offering both right and left handers. The wave is often small, fairly soft and fat, good for mals. Great for beginner and intermediate surfers. Marfells Beach also has a camping ground (DOC).

From Blenheim head south on State Highway 1, through Sedden. Just past the Grassmere salt works, turn left onto Marfells beach Road. Continue down to the end of the road, the road will turn to gravel at the beach. Marfells Beach has a DOC camp ground.
