Whitianga Tours

Whitianga, located in the Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand’s North Island, is the main town on Mercury Bay. An erstwhile deepwater port for timber (kauri) in the 1800s and early 1900s, it’s known for lush 18th century harvested forests and exciting water sports. Grassy, paved walkways around town lead you past heritage buildings and historical sights. Outside of town, the region is ideal for nature enthusiasts with gravel roads leading to Kaori forests and pristine waterfalls. While Whitianga’s unspoiled beaches and craggy coasts invite you to dive in, kayak or go fishing, there are also therapeutic geothermal pools at the Lost Spring surrounded by crystal and amethyst caves. And if that’s not enough, you could always end up digging your own spa tub in the sand and relaxing at Hot Water Beach. Just a short boat ride away, Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve is a great spot for snorkeling or scuba diving amid colorful fish and corals.

Highlights
