PLACES TO SEE
- The Deepwater Whitianga Harbour: Is home to the Mercury Bay Boating Club, and is the take off point for various scenic cruises and fishing activities.
- Hahei Beach: Is a sheltered stretch of sand with a marine park, enclosed by offshore islands. It is perfect for diving.
- Te Pare Point Historic Reserve: Encompasses the remains of two prominent sites of the Ngati Hei people . A nearby spring and the remains of several midden suggest the site was a good location for both freshwater and shellfish.
- Hot Water Beach: Boasts heated waters that occur due to volcanic fissures, which allow hot water to escape from volcanic water reservoirs and rise to the surface. It is best to arrive one hour before low tide to dig out your own little beach spa, then relax until the sea comes in again and floods the beach. If you decide to go for a swim, Look Out! for spots where the water may be very hot, and the particularly brutal riptides of this area.
