We are delighted that our Town was voted Best Beach in New Zealand 2018!



Come and see why.  Our Beaches provide some of The Coromandel Peninsula's best surfing, for all levels and endless safe swimmming. 


If you prefer a freshwater dip, head inland and explore our native bush walks in Wentworth Valley which meander alongside The Wentworth River.


Whangamata is also home to mountain bike trails galore. Get in touch with us if you'd like to make the most of your stay here and enjoy some of the Whanga' outdoor experiences. We will put you in contact with the best locals to fit you out with the gear, lessons or a guided experience.


If the outdoorsy lifestyle isn't for you, Whanga's town centre can very easily accomodate the shopaholic with plenty of boutique stores and art galleries.


With over 10 cafes & restaurants you are spoilt for choice in dining experiences just walking distance from your home-base here at La Dolce Vita.
