Whangamata Beach is one of the best on the Corormandel Peninsula. It has great surfing, especially on the bar at the northern end. It provides great swimming in most conditions and is a great beach to walk along. At low tide, it is possible to wade out to Hauturu (Clark) Island. Rare dotterels breed at the southern end. It is a beach with something for everyone.

The folks from Whangamata are delightful. A walk on their beach is beautiful, and especially delightful if you strike up a conversation with someone along the way.

Whangamata beach is beautiful on a hot fine day or a cold windy day. A stunning part of New Zealand at any time of the year winter or summer.

Recently had a dads and kids camping weekend at the Whangamata motor camp which was located perfectly with the beach 100m in one direction and the town shops 100m in the other direction.
It was a lovely campsite with friendly regulars everywhere and was helped by fabulous weather. Being a dads weekend there was no cooking as we ate out the whole time however the facilities Ll looked fine.

Would definitely recommend.
