The distance from Dunedin is about 30 km.
From State Highway 1, 24 km north of Dunedin, turn right into Coast Road at the sign to Warrington and drive 1 km before veering right into Park Road. About half a kilometer along Park Road, turn right into Bank Road then, 300 m along, follow the street left into Bay Road (a forced left turn) then at the first right, drive into the Warrington Recreation Reserve. Go down a track beside the Warrington Surf Lifesaving club to the beach and walk to your right. (Textiles generally go to the left.)
To get across the inlet to Doctors Point Beach, go back to SH 1, then 4 km south and turn left at the sign to Waitaki.
