Fun in the sun at Sunset and Karioitahi beaches

Sunset Beach Pukekohe
Off to the surf!!!

People have been out in force, enjoying the outdoors particularly at local beaches Sunset and Karioitahi. Surfers, hangliders, horse and bike riders, and people just enjoying strolls along the sand, were all part of the Christmas holiday fun.

We Love Pukekohe’s photographer spent time at both venues capturing some of those who were making the most of the brilliant sunshine between Christmas and New Year.
