Opito is a lovely bay off the beaten track but well situated for many of the sights within the Coromandel peninsula. There's nothing to do in the bay itself other than to chill out and walk along the beach so those wanting to eat or drink out will need to take a 30 minute drive into Whittianga. Staying at Leighton Lodge is like staying at someone's home (which it is) rather than staying at a B&B. The hosts Maire and Wally are very friendly and welcoming as are the dogs and cat! We stayed in the Pacific room which was nice and had great views of the bay and the neighbourhood. Meals are taken with other guests and the hosts around a communal table - we had dinner 2 nights. This was great for those looking for some authentic Kiwi hospitality but perhaps not for those wanting a more private break - although the self contained dowstairs Seahorse suite would provide that. Food was tasty and light and the dinners with wine good value.
