The Avaavaroa beach access way is a pathway located on a sloping raised coral limestone terrace in section 11L of Te Tukunga Tapere on Mauke Island. The access way provides a convenient route from the lagoon to Avaavaroa Beach.
The Avaavaaroa Beach Access Way Project aimed to address the longstanding challenge of limited accessibility to the breathtaking Avaavaroa Beach. The lack of proper infrastructure hindered residents and visitors alike from fully experiencing the beauty and tranquility that Avaavaroa offers. This project sought to create a safe and convenient pathway to and from the beach, ensuring that everyone can enjoy its wonders. Furthermore, the project sought to preserve the natural wonders of Avaavaroa Beach by providing a designated pathway that minimizes disturbance to the fragile ecosystem.
Through meticulous planning, diligent efforts, and a shared vision, the project team worked tirelessly to design and construct a well-integrated access way. Careful consideration was given to the surrounding environment, ensuring that the project harmoniously blended with the natural landscape. Sturdy and well-maintained stairs were built, providing a safe and convenient pathway for all to enjoy.
The completion of the Avaavaroa Beach Access Way Project would not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of numerous individuals. Our community, local authorities, and a team of skilled builders came together, investing their time, skills, and resources to make this project a reality.
Raita Moetaua, NES Environment Officer for Mauke, stated ‘let us embrace the completed Avaavaroa Beach Access Way Project as a symbol of our commitment to accessibility and sustainability of Mauke’s natural beauty’.
