"Whitianga on the Coromandel Peninsular." Whitianga by kiwi

Whitianga Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 60 photos

Whitianga is a lovely coastal town on the Coromandel Peninsular. Nice features include a lovely harbour and long sandy beaches, a very nice marina and wharf, lots of lovely palm trees and Norfolk pinetrees.
Recently there has been a canal estate being built which will be fantastic once settled.

Coastal town.

The town is built right next to the beach. A lovely sweeping sandy beach uncluttered and easily accessible to the public.

And around the corner, past the wharf is the lovely marina. You can sit here with a nice cold drink and watch as the boats come and go.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice beach, great fishing and glorious bush all around.
  • Cons:Quite a long drive to get there, with winding roads.
  • In a nutshell:A very pleasant coastal town, with a nice climate.

    I've been told by friends who have gone to New Zealand, that it is the most beautiful place on Earth. Your site and your photographs are making that a fact in my mind.
