Whitianga is pronounced like “F”itianga. the “WH” is like an airy “F” in NZ.
Whitianga is on the Coromandel Peninsula, a 3.5 hour bus ride from Auckland. It is a sleepy beach town with spectacular views. Basically, I laid on the beach all weekend.
Have a look:
Shakespeare’s Cliff – roughly 45 minute walk from my hostel.
Lonely Bay – beautiful secluded beach that I saw from up on Shakespeare’s Cliff and hiked down to with my “chips” in tow.
Hot Water Beach
Hot water beach is a thermal beach. So, you feel the sand to see if it is warm, and if it’s warm you can dig a hole and your hole will start to fill with warm thermal water! Sometimes the water is so hot you can’t even sit in it!
Families, diggin holes and sittin in em’.
Me and my German amigas were gifted this hole from another German couple, so we didn’t even have to dig!
A lovely little bay on the way to Cathedral Cove.
Beautiful cave on the side of Stingray Bay
This is the money maker, the most beautiful beach I’ve been to yet!
I had a wonderful weekend on the Coromandel Peninsula.
