Coromandel Peninsula: Whangamata

Whangamata is quiet now, a lazy little town of 3500 with a focus on surfing. We set out on a walk this morning that would take us 7.5 miles down the beach and back through town for the inevitable flat white break.

Our little motel is situated just a block from the harbor.

It gives way to a large arc of beach. The blues are alive today.

 Homes dot the graceful dunes.

 When we could walk no further we rounded a bend to escape the wind.

This was a good first stop for us on our way up the east coast of the Coromandel. Tomorrow we'll head to Hahei.

Here's the location (if reading in email click here to view map):
