Whitianga is on the eastern side of the Coromandel Peninsula, approximately 2 hours drive from Hamilton and Auckland. Whitianga is well known for the fabulous beaches and bays which make up Mercury Bay. Recognised for big game fishing, boating and water sporting activities, the safe waters in the bay also entice the more leisurely beach going families and visitors to this part of the Peninsula.
Whitianga has many social and service clubs, tennis clubs, rugby fields, an 18 hole golf course, bowls, aero club and many other organisations to
cater for all ages and interests. There is a great mix of cafes and bars to choose something different for every occasion.
There is a continuing care hospital along with two medical centres, dentist, Chiropractor and ambulance services.
The Lost Spring, a tropical pools, spa and dining resort is a stunning and new addition to Whitianga(TM)s attractions.
