“Blissfully uncrowded!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Superb beach for safe swimming, although it was not patrolled during our stay in early March. Walk around the sand-spit to an even longer stretch of deserted beach.

“Beautiful wide golden beaches”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Always loved Whangamata as a kid. So pleased to see that some things don't change. The new Marina was a surprise after the controversy surrounding it's proposal but from a visitor's perspective, it's an improvement to the small coastal town, however my Gran and Pop would probably have disagreed!

Beach was beautiful, the whole town was very homely and friendly. The new harbour is also worth viewing.
