Good surf beach patrolled by lifeguards during the summer. Great little shops in the town and the bakery does the best Vietnamese Summer Rolls.

A calmer spot down the opposite end of Waihi Beach, great for a picnic and a lazy day under the trees. If your legs are up to it, climb up the steep hill on the ocean side for the best of views!

A surf beach backed by some lovely cafes, gelato and ice cream shops. Lifeguards patrol during the summer months. Swim between the yellow and red flags for the safest swim.

Calm water with a gradually sloping sea bed, great for young families or those not to keen on the surf. Often events held there in the summer like the Birdman competition, a hilarious afternoon! Take your fish and chips there in the evening and watch the cruise ships leave the harbour.

At the south end of Upland Road is an entrance to the Kaimai Mamaku forest park. It’s a 40min walk to the river or alternatively drive back down to Wright Road, turn right and go to the end of the road where there is plenty of parking. Tracks and times are marked on the notice board, the swimming hole is lovely and again about 40mins walk.

Grocery and Fresh Produce
It’s where the locals go for their veg! Super fresh with many items from their own market garden or from local growers. Highly recommend the rocket, fresh turmeric and strawberries when in season. Eftpos available and take a shopping bag with you if you have one.
