The Coromandel is an unbeatable place to holiday no matter where you go—but Whitianga is truly the sparkling jewel in the Peninsula’s crown.

Nestled on the eastern side of the peninsula on the beautiful Mercury Bay, Whitianga is just a couple of hours drive from Auckland Airport. In the unlikely event that you’re not a fan of the scenic kiwi road trip, you can also fly from Auckland to Whitianga with Barrier Air. It’s just a quick 22-minute flight—and a spectacular one at that!

Whitianga is known for offering spectacular natural beauty and plenty to do. A popular destination over the summer months and a picture-perfect escape during winter, it’s an easy drive to the iconic attractions of Hahei, Cathedral Cove, and Hot Water Beach. And if you prefer to stay local, there are dozens of beaches to explore, activities galore, and an amazing selection of shops and restaurants.

Buffalo Beach is situated right in the mix, just off the esplanade, a short stroll to town, and a few hundred metres away from the harbour. A popular spot with families and holidaymakers, Buffalo Beach is great for swimming, fishing, and water sports.
