Waihi - Southern Coromandel - New Zealand

  • Waihi Beach offers nine kilometres of sweeping white sand, and one of the safest surf beaches in New Zealand. Relax on the beach and enjoy the sunshine or partake in more adventurous activities such as boogie boarding, kayaking or kite boarding.

    For boaties, fishermen, skiers, swimmers, kayakers and picnickers, the combination of beach and harbour in close proximity provides a fantastic holiday destination.

    For those who enjoy the simple life, Waihi Beach is your kind of town, with old wooden buildings, a white sand beach where you can enjoy shellfish collecting and sea fishing - and not a shopping mall in sight! The Beach' as locals call it, also has a modern shopping village and excellent restaurants.

    Waihi Accommodation

    A whole range of accommodation in Waihi is available - from camping grounds to motels, B&Bs and luxury lodges within easy distance.

    About Waihi

    One of the most famous gold mining towns in New Zealand, gold mining history is apparent everywhere in Waihi. And unlike other parts of the region, this is still very much a gold mining town - with production hidden behind the leafy slopes close to the main street
