Some lucky buggers living there, many people bought those houses long before NZ was discovered by the rich and famous at bargain prices, now you will be one of only a few lucky ones to be able to afford them Our house prices are exorbitant.

a place with a perfect weather - slow-paced, relaxed and yet secured.
There are parts that I really love but Whitianga is not one of them - the setting is amazing but every mistake that you can make regarding town planning has been made there It is a travesty

NZ is paradise - 2nd most peaceful country in the world, least corrupt country in the world, nice down-to-earth people who frown upon Nationalism, incredible scenery (everywhere), mild weather and then you get the volcanoes and the earthquakes - we are sitting on a time-bomb Thanks for the comment mate

It has been a while but we finally made it back to The Coromandel Region. The road trip never ceases to amaze and this time round it was even more beautiful with misty hills and a fantastic sunrise.

18 FEB 12 | WHANGAMATA - PART 1


The town of Whangamata is sited on the southeast coast of the Coromandel Peninsula in the North Island of New Zealand. The population of Whangamata was 3555 in the 2006 Census. In holiday times the population swells considerably: New Year's celebrations fill the town to over 25,000 though this falls soon after New Year's Day.

A number of off-shore islands can be seen from the beach. Hauturu or Clark Island is accessible by wading at low tide and is popular in summer months for rock-pool fossickers and kayakers. Whenuakura, sometimes known as Donut Island, sits about a kilometre east of the southern part of Whangamata beach (Otahu Beach). Tuatara roamed on Whenuakura until fairly recently. Whenuakura Island has a large collapsed blow hole which has formed a small beach inside the island - hence the alternative name.

The town has two ocean beaches, both of which are extremely safe for swimming and surfing. There is a safe boating harbour at the North end of the town and another estuary at the South end. Both the harbour and estuary provide good swimming for families. 15 Minutes drive south of Whangamata is the quietly popular beach Whiritoa. Other beaches just north of Whangamata are Onemana and Opoutere.

There are a number of clubs, restaurants and hotels, which are able to provide meals, refreshments and entertainment for visitors.
