Relaxing on the beach, roasting in the mid-day sun, the smell of suntan lotion and salt air in your nostrils, crowds of people enjoying themselves. This would be one of the most popular leisure activities at Whangamata in the summer months.
Although the name “Whangamata” may first bring to mind sparkling mid-summer beaches, the area also caters for many recreational interests. From Whangamata you can go big game fishing, mountain biking and walking in both native and exotic forests, camping in the Wentworth Valley, there are two golf courses (9 and 18 hole), kayaking off the beach, water-skiing and windsurfing in the harbour – scuba diving, the activities are endless!

Welcome to Whangamata, have a safe Christmas and a happy new year
