Waihi Beach is reknown for its clean surf beaches, walking tracks through the pristine dense pohutukawa forests of Orokawa and Homunga Bay, and abundant fishing. Launch your boat right off the beach at Bowentown or throw your line right in front of the bach for a feed of snapper and kahwai. Anzac Bay, a few minutes to the south provides a panoramic picnic spot with spectacular lookouts towards Matakana Island and Tauranga harbour. Walking the beach provides endless opportunities to watch local fisherman launch their contiki long lines in the hope of bringing in an epic catch.
Local fresh produce abounds with the Waihi Beach fresh produce market and numerous roadside stalls. Be sure to visit the Gold Mining Museum and take a ride on both the Historic Goldfields Railway and Victoria Battery Tramway in Waihi.
Enjoy seeing owners riding their horses on the beach, sitting in the hot pools at Athenree, wineries, waterfalls and the magnificent Karangahake Gorge are but a few of the endless opportunities to explore here in the beautiful Waihi Beach.
