The Greater Marsden Point Area is distinctive for its Pacific coastline, where Bream Bay extends for 22 kilometres of white-sand beach. The Bay includes native reserve islands - the Hen and Chicken Islands and Sail Rock. West of Marsden Point, the area extends into the sheltered waters of Whangarei Harbour.
The lands of the Greater Marsden Point Area are unusually flat and open terrain, in stark contrast to the towering tree-covered cliffs of Mount Manaia, which rise 403 metres above sea level just across the Harbour on the northern entrance. Easy access to beaches and recreational fishing grounds, with a climate of warm summers and mild winters, make the area a popular holiday spot and residential location.
