Things To Do

The choice is yours

Relaxing on the beach

Te Mahia has a wonderful beach for guests use. It is one of the few places in the Marlborough Sounds where the beach nestles alongside the lawns, gardens and decks of the resort. A truly unique feature that only Te Mahia can offer you on your holiday.

Having fun on the water

Getting out on the water with your own boat, jet ski or kayak is easy.  As a guest of the Resort we will launch your boat for you and safe secure moorings are available.

Adult and child kayaks as well as stand up paddlebaords are also available at the resort for hire.


Bringing your own boat or just fishing off the wharf – it could be the fishing experience of your life! We have all the contacts for that essential local knowledge.

Walking on the Queen Charlotte Track

It’s a 20 minute walk up to the Queen Charlotte Track.  Go for a wander along the track up to the Te Mahia lookout, or a more serious walk to Portage or perhaps Lochmara Lodge for lunch. Escape into the mystery of the beech forest and ferns of the Vogel Track down to Mistletoe Bay, or loop back around via the peninsula walk to Te Mahia.

Reading and relaxing

Sit on the beach in the sun for a quiet read (dozing off to the sound of the waves on the shore) or relax in the comfort of your unit with a selection of books and magazines from the library in your room.

Whether its fishing, bush walking reading or relaxing Te Mahia is THE destination.


Alternatively why not, relax and enjoy a therapeutic relaxing massage in the privacy of our Massage Suite – “The Sea Goddess Suite” at Te Mahia Bay Resort.

Booking is essential, so please contact us at reception to make your appointment.
