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.

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.
