Whitianga & Mercury BayThe perfect location to explore the Coromandel

Make Whitianga your base to explore the Coromandel as we are the heart of the peninsula. Whitianga is a lively town well set up for the visitor, with excellent cafés, bars and restaurants. We have galleries, a museum, bone carving, mountain biking, fishing, scenic tours by bus or boat and all types of shopping. Nearby are the world-famous Hot Water Beach (best time to be there is at low tide) and stunning Cathedral Cove. The cove can be accessed by boat or a 90-minute walk from Hahei.
