The welcoming surf town of Whangamata, with its large main beach is set against a backdrop of native forest park. The waves at this large beach break offer perfect conditions for surf beginners to learn in gentle, yet consistent waves. When the famous surf break at the left of the bay named ‘The Whanga Bar’ is on, it creates a beautiful, long left hander, starting with a steep drop in, a long barrel section and a nice, long wall.

Ashore lie Clark Island and Donut Island which can be reached by kayak or stand up paddle board. The Coromandel peninsula is steep and hilly and is largely covered in temperate rainforest. Just inland from the town, the Coromandel Forest Park is the place for hiking, mountain biking and hunting and the beautiful Wentworth waterfall is close by.
