The ideal spot for a beachside getaway, Surf N Stay Whangamata is a great place to base yourself when you're looking to take in all the best that Coromandel has to offer with accommodation available in the form of a great range of dorms, a private room, and a large studio unit. 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. They can cater to absolutely everyone with their quiver of boards - whether you're a total grom or you've carved more than a few barrels in your time, this beach-side haven's got everything you need.

If that sounds all a bit too active for you and you would like to have a chilled holiday on Coromandel, 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.

With all their accommodation, they offer free Internet and a complimentary breakfast that is served between 08:30 and 09:30. Fresh sheets and bedding are provided. They have a kitchen with fridge, oven, and microwave. The barbecue outside can be used to cook meat, etc. Parking is available in front of the hostel and if full, just on the street close by. They can organize transport for you.

The Drifter Room

The Drifter shared room consists of four single beds set as bunks. Drifter dorm bunks are spacious, allowing guests to sit comfortably on the bed whilst relaxing with a good book or perhaps planning your next big adventure with the use of the free Wi-Fi.

Whanga Bar Dorm

The Whangamata Bar Dorm consists of six single beds set as bunks.

This surf course takes place in Whangamata, North Island, New Zealand. The welcoming surf town of Whangamata with its large main beach is set against a backdrop of the 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 paddle board.

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 and mountain biking, and the beautiful Wentworth waterfall is close by. Surf N Stay is located just a short stroll away from the beach with shops and restaurants only a few minutes away.
