About Whangamata

A charming surf town known for its beautiful beaches, Whangamata is the perfect place to surf rolling breaks, swim in quiet harbor waters and catch fish. Whangamata also offers easy access to offshore islands, forest parks, and iconic shorelines.

Things to do

Start your holiday at Whangamata Beach, often dubbed the best beach in New Zealand, to enjoy its surf breaks and estuaries where you can kayak and paddleboard. Organise a trip to Whenuakura Wildlife Sanctuary, also known as “Donut Island”, to explore an old volcano with a turquoise lagoon in the island’s center.

Hop in a kayak and head to Hauturu Island, also known as “Little Barrier Island”, to explore one of New Zealand’s largest offshore island reserves. If you prefer to explore the mainland, hike the Luck at Last Mine trail to walk past old gold mine ruins filled with mining relics.

Art enthusiasts can admire contemporary art at Topadahil Art Studios, which highlights the work of Guity Evelyn. Browse the paintings and admire the gallery’s Wharekawa Harbour views. To see work by local Coromandel artists, head to The Little Gallery.

Hike through Coromandel Forest Park, perfect for trekking, mountain biking, and hunting. Make your way through the trails to see the immense beauty of Wentworth Falls. Only six kilometers from Whangamata is the crescent-shaped Onemana Beach, which is great for snorkeling and surfing.
