Whitianga is a brilliant place. Slowly over the years it has developed from a small, semi-rural, sleepy sea-side town, into a medium sized town that absolutely bustles with life during the holiday periods.
Whitianga is central to the Coromandel Pennisula and all that it offers. You can easily travel to Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Thames, Coromandel township, etc.
The township itself boasts a decent selection of restaurants and shops, and the townsfolk are friendly and welcoming.
Whitianga is a perfect haven for those wanting somewhere to relax with beaches, bushwalks, and nature close-by.
If you love fishing, boating, diving etc - then Whitianga is the place for you.
