Visit Waihi Beach with Mighway

Hire a campervan in Waihi Beach


Waihi Beach is a coastal town at the western end of the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand's North Island. It lies 10 kilometres to the east of the town of Waihi, at the foot of the Coromandel Peninsula. The main beach itself extends approximately 10 kilometres to the south with the small settlement of Bowentown at its southern end. The headland at the southern of the beach is on the northern side of the northern (Katikati) entrance to Tauranga Harbour. Waihi Beach had a population of 1773 at the 2006 New Zealand Census but that number skyrockets to 16,000 in the Summer. At the northern end of Waihi Beach, the 145 hectares (360 acres) Orokawa Scenic Reserve offers several short walking tracks along the coast and to Orokawa Bay. While the main beach is backed by the residential area of the township of Waihi Beach, Orokawa Bay is undeveloped and surrounded by native bush including pohutukawa, puriri, and nikau palms. Waihi Beach boasts a number of cafes, eateries, the Waihi Beach Hotel built in 1967, two holiday parks, and the Athenree mineral hot springs near by.

For 3 hours, escorted by 2 highly trained guides with no more than 10 people, you will experience one of the North Island’s last remaining remnants of untouched forest in the most exciting and unique of ways.

Be inspired by the beauty of the forest and the excitement of the ziplines while losing yourself to the power of nature on a journey you will remember forever.

Tamaki Maori Village

A 3 hour journey into the heart of Maori Culture...an experience you will never forget! Journey with us to the outskirts of Rotorua, to a Maori village nestled in an ancient forest. There, after a formal and sacred ceremony, you’ll be welcomed through the fortifications and into the village.

As fires blaze, the entire village comes to life. See and learn about Maori art forms and Maori traditions. See Maori weaponry displays, watch women weaving and making Maori crafts, listen to villagers tell stories of their ancestors and history, experience traditional Maori tattoo, ancient horticultural practices and so much more.

Traditional songs and dances are also performed for you – experience the unique Poi dance, breath-taking harmonies and the famed, powerful Maori Haka. The Tamaki Rotorua Maori Village experience culminates in a sumptuous 3-course feast. Tamaki Maori Village Rotorua offers visitors an authentic Maori Hangi meal, steamed underground in the traditional way.

Redwoods Forest

Haere mai ki te Wao Tapu nui ä Tane, Nau mai haere mai.

The history and culture surrounding the Whakarewarewa Forest, the variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, diverse range of exotic tree species, mix of native undergrowth, panoramic views, and proximity to lakes, thermal areas and the city centre have made The Redwoods & Whakarewarewa Forest one of Rotorua’s most spectacular natural assets and one of the city’s greatest treasures.

Over 5600 hectares of forest awaits you to enjoy and explore at your leisure. If you love the outdoors and want to experience nature at its best this area is definitely for you!

The forest is most well known for the network of superb mountain biking and walking tracks and for the magnificent stand of Californian Coast Redwoods. These towering trees, along with numerous other species and the fresh forest air, combine to create an invigorating atmosphere and a truly unique and special environment.
