Waihi Beach

Bay of Plenty
All year round

At the northern tip of the Coastal Bay of Plenty lies Waihī Beach, a bustling beachside village which is home to cute boutique shops, eateries and 9-kilometres of white sand beach.

Located in the bountiful Western Bay of Plenty and gateway to the Coromandel, Waihi Beach is just 2 hours drive from Auckland, 1.5 hours from Hamilton and 50 minutes from Tauranga. Waihi Beach is a great place to stay if you’re looking for an old-school, kiwi beach holiday. Ice cream, fish and chips, splashing about in the waves for hours on end – this is where the magic happens! Waihi Beach has beautiful bush walks, secluded beaches, surf, mineral pools and quality events all year round.
