Where is Whangamata New Zealand? Map of Whangamata
With the native forest park as a backdrop, the relaxed surfing village of Whangamata is the ideal place to surf, fish or enjoy a delicious dish in the cafe.
The attractive combination of sand, surf and native forest make Whangamata a popular destination for summer holidays. Find your place on this four-kilometer ocean beach, go surfing or swim in the calm waters of the port. There are two golf courses in the area and many nautical charters to go diving or fishing. Hauturu Island can be reached by kayaking or wading in the sea when the tide is low.
Behind the village, the Coromandel Forest Park offers a good place for hiking and mountain biking, and for hunting. The walk to Wentworth Falls is particularly charming.
