Most enjoyable place to stay. Stay in the Camp ground in Barbara Ave, park your car, walk to the beach, sun surf and swim, or walk to town and enjoy the cafe's, restaurants and the clubs.
Beautiful and relaxing.

It would be 30 years since we last stayed in Whangamata. It is certainly a lovely beach & the Township has improved considerably over that time.
Only down side is that the beach is perhaps a bit surfy for a couple of "oldies" to swim at.

We visit here several times a year and it is always beautiful. A great beach to swim at and walk from end to end. Soft white sand, great waves and not too crowded - what more could you ask for?

I love Whangamata as a holitday spot. It's big enough that there's a supermarket and a main street full of shops and cafes, but small enough to get around on foot or bike. The beach is always amazing and there's loads to do - fishing, diving, snorkelling, walking, wading over to Clarke Island at low tide, paddling up the estuary... This is quite possibly my favourite town in the world.

Fantastic spot to take photographs.and the surfing is fantastic. People are friendly and especially the motel hosts. It was like another home away from home.
