Reconnect with yourself, your family, or your friends by taking a complete break and enjoying the simple things in life - eating together, swimming, surfing, taking walks on the beach, hiking some trails, riding the rail trail, or just relaxing with a book. Our beach house provides the perfect base for your activities and being just 500m away from the beach, shops and cafes, you can simply park the car and walk everywhere
The beach is generally very safe for swimming, surfing, paddle boarding and kayaking, and if the tide is not too high it is an excellent place to run, walk or bike. There's good fishing and boat ramps are just 7km down the road. Even in the height of summer the 9km long beach never feels crowded
If you enjoy hiking there is a beautiful bush walk to Orokawa Bay at the north end of the beach (3km along the beach to the track start). Orokawa is stunningly beautiful with golden sands, huge pohutukawa trees, and is accessible only by foot or boat (which means you're often the only one there!)
The interesting and historic Karangahake Gorge is a 20 min drive away and has some fantastic walks including our favorite - the Windows Walk, which takes you through old gold mining tunnels. For those who enjoy a longer hike there is a great trail going to the top of Mt Karangahake. The very popular Hauraki Rail Trail also runs through the gorge and is suitable for the whole family
Should you need to replenish your supplies the vibrant Waihi Beach village shops are just 500m away. There is a well-stocked 4 Square supermarket, a number of cafes and restaurants, takaway outlets, a bakery, butcher, fashion and gift shops etc
While we can't make any promises, Waihi Beach is known to have some of the best weather in the country!!
