Set against a backdrop of native forest park, the welcoming surf town of Whangamata is the perfect place to catch a wave, a fish or enjoy a delicious coffee or meal!

Fabulous white sand beaches with magnificent coastal scenery, a rugged forest-cloaked interior waiting to be explored and one of New Zealand's best surfing breaks - with yet the safest swimming in the country - are just some of the natural attractions that have people returning to Whangamata time after time.

"When searching for the perfect surf camp location in New Zealand, we could not believe how lucky we were to discover Whangamata and create our dream in this magical place. The long and beautiful main beach offers many waves for all levels of surfing. Surf teaching on these waves is inspiring and fulfilling as we see everyone have fun and progress so fast. When the swell is right, the famous “Whanga Bar” comes to life and surfers can enjoy the endless, perfect left handers.

Then there are the islands that are just waiting to be explored with our kayaks or stand up paddle boards. We are lucky enough to have access to one of the best kept secrets of the Coromandel, Whenuakura (commonly known as Donut Island), with its blue lagoon and hidden beaches, it is truly a jewel of the Pacific!" - Kat & Mauro
