Having never been there, I am trying but struggling to ascertain where the access points to Papamoa Beach are along Papamoa Beach Road.
Are there multiple access points and where do they span from, or is there only one?
The yellow marks on the above map shows walkway access to beach at the East end of Papamoa.
There are also quite a few along the rest of the Papamoa Beach Road but not really showing as quite a distance over the dunes.
The best being at the end of Domain Rd by Papamoa Beach Resort with good toilets & chaging rooms & plenty of parking.
