Surf life saving operating during the Summer. Little nippers club during Summer school holidays. Bar open from 5.30 and big screen for 'the game'!
Visit the blow hole at the south end of the beach on a rough day- awesome!!! Waimama reserve opposite- lovely to walk through the bush and pohutukawas to the next beach where there are rock pools and fishing. Nice swimming too in the more sheltered Waimama Bay. Keep walking over the hills to the 'secret special beach' and the cave, waterfall and ship wreck. Magic!
Only 15 minutes from Waihi, for gold history and steam train, and Whangamata for the boat ramp, golf, supermarket, and cafes, although the local shop does a good coffee too and has nearly everything you might need, including fish and chips at the weekend and holidays. Heaps of walks around the area. Stop in the Karangahake Gorge between Paeroa and Waihi. Explore the Coromandel Forest Park if you are more adventurous, but you probably won't go anywhere!!
