Whitianga cruised into a comfortable second place in New Zealand’s best town as voted on Trip Advisor (for 2017). Tourism mecca - Queenstown came in first which makes Whitianga’s result all the more impressive, given NZ’s tourist capital is a juggernaut in comparison.
Whitianga topped all other New Zealand holiday spots which is a seriously impressive feat, as there are so many epic spots in The Coromandel let alone NZ!
There are 3 must do attractions on Whitianga’s doorstep, Cathedral Cove, Hot Water Beach and New Chum Beach. If you ask the friendly locals they’ll tell you why they have a different favourite beach. The Coromandel is spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful beaches.
The Lost Spring is in the heart of Whitianga, The Coromandel's very own Pacific Thermal Ocean Village.
The dining scene is worth the trip alone, from cafes and restaurants in Whitianga to those in surrounding Pacific coast villages, it all adds to the 5 star rating you’ll experience in Whiticity!
