Waihi Beach is less than 15 minutes drive from the campground. As well as the attraction of a stunning 10km stretch of white-sand beach, there are great bushwalks and fishing spots. Starting at the Northern end of the beach is the coastal track to Orokawa Bay. Continue on the coastal bush track North, you will get to Homunga Bay. Both of these tracks are beautifully secluded and a great way to spend a day.
The early Maori Pa site of Anzac Bay at the Southern end of the Bowentown Headland has excellent views of the harbour, the ranges to the West and the entire length of Waihi Beach to the North. Plenty of opportunity to really enjoy the outdoors.
