Stay in our Whitianga hotels and enjoy surfcasting, swimming, sailboard riding, and yachting on the beach. The Mercury Bay Boating Club has its home in Whitianga and sail their club events and dream of the America's Cup Challenge. Whitianga has been continuously occupied for more than a thousand years since Maori explorer Kupe's tribe settled here after his visit in about 950AD. Prior to that the land was abundant with moas and there is evidence that there were early moa hunters here 2000 years ago.
Our wide range of hotel accommodation lets you take in the sites and experience all there is to offer. Now a thriving town with around 4000 permanent residents Whitianga offers a full range of visitor services and attractions. There are seven good beaches all within easy reach of the town. Buffalo Beach, Whitianga's main beach, takes its name from H.M.S. Buffalo, wrecked there in 1840. Dolphins live in the bay and several frolic around the Whitianga wharf in the summer.
Our Whitianga accommodation makes a great base from which to visit Kuaotuna and its northern beaches, where you will find various activities ranging from Bike Safaris to Horse Riding or just lazing away on one of the many stunning beaches.
Our Whitianga hotels are perfect for enjoying all the area has to offer!
