Walking and cycling tracks abound. From the North end walk over the hills to Orokawa Bay, a pristine, unspoiled sandy beach with gnarly pohutukawa trees giving shade. 45 minutes each way.


Five minutes walk and you’re at the Waihi Beach Village offering a grocery store/post office, deli, butcher, bakery, chemist, hardware, liquor store and a number of boutiques and cafes.
