In the breathtaking city of Whangamata, clear waterfalls rush through lush rainforest and the frothy waves of the Pacific Ocean ripple onto pristine beaches. Surrounded by so many stunning natural landscapes, this New Zealand town is an exciting haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Whangamata is peaceful and picturesque and there are a plethora of ways to enjoy the dramatic scenery of the area! Paddleboard or kayak out to the striking Whenuakura Island, or explore gold mines and glow worms on a tour with Kiwi Dundee Adventures. Enjoy the beauty of the water as you sink your toes into the soft sand of Onemana Beach, cast a line with Fish On Charters, and coast the powerful waves with the help of Surf N Stay New Zealand.

The verdant valleys of the Coromandel Forest Park are the perfect place to hike and discover its surging waterfalls that spill into quiet pools, or you can cycle along the Whangamata Matariki Forest Trails for panoramas of the sandy surf bar. The amazing exhibits at the Little Gallery Whangamata are also well worth a visit while you are in town. These 10 Airbnb vacation rentals are wonderful accommodation options from which to explore Whangamata. Read more about them below!
