No. 39 Mimiwhangata Bay
We cleaned the easterly of the two beaches in this bay. This one was 1.3km long and was amazingly clean, yielding only 0.4kg of debris. There were quite a lot of plastic bottles tops and pieces of rope amongst this. The beach is part of a Department of Conservation Marine Reserve and so may be cleaned, but nonetheless it was good to see such a clean beach which has an open northerly aspect to the Pacific Ocean.
