Onsite is a surf school and an equipment hire store with sea kayaks and stand up paddle boards, great to explore the Bay of Islands with full-length Rip Curl wetsuits.

Whangamata is set in the south of the Coromandel Peninsular within the Waikato region of New Zealand. It's beauty when surfing is joined with rainbows and islands. It is now known as the best-voted beach for New Zealand. The family-owned Surf lodge is with one minute's walk to the beach and five minutes away from town.

The welcoming surf town of Whangamata, with its large main beach, is set against a backdrop of native forest park. The waves at this large beach break offer perfect conditions for surf beginners to learn in gentle, yet consistent waves. When the famous surf break at the left of the bay named ‘The Whanga Bar’ is on, it creates a beautiful, long left-hander, starting with a steep drop in, a long barrel section and a nice, long wall. Ashore lie Clark Island and Donut Island which can be reached by kayak or stand up paddleboard. The Coromandel Peninsula is steep and hilly and is largely covered in temperate rainforest. Just inland from the town, the Coromandel Forest Park is the place for hiking, mountain biking and hunting and the beautiful Wentworth waterfall is close by. We are located just a short stroll away from the beach with shops and restaurants only a few minutes away. There's also Wentworth waterfalls, which is located within a 10-minute drive.

This town gives that with uncrowded beaches to explore, trails with New Zealand native bush, to amazing waterfalls and swimming holes. Fun shopping and yummy cafes in town, all just within a five-minute walk.

At summer time, Whangamata turns into New Zealanders’ favorite holiday resort, creating a Kiwi holiday vibe with many families and surfers on the world-class break called the Whangamata Bar, and one of the best east coast breaks. This off-the-tourist-track gem of a place has hidden itself for years. You won't believe the amazing things to see and things to do until they tell you, or have you already heard? Their newly set up family run and owned accommodation will make you feel welcome and leave you with a smile.
