Opito Bay is one of the most private, stunning and safest beaches on the Coromandel Peninsula (in fact it is one of the nicest unspoiled beaches in NZ) A beautiful safe spot for great walks, swimming, boogey boarding, diving, fishing and boating - Opito has it all. It is secluded and a fantastic place to holiday.
4 bedrooms (2 upstairs, 2 downstairs), 2 bathrooms,2 toilets, open plan kitchen / dining / lounge. Stunning views from decks on 3 sides of the property complete with BBQ, outdoor tables and umbrellas. Outdoor shower to wash off the sand.
Fully equipped kitchen with pantry and modern conveniences including new double doored fridge
Large sized flat section with plenty of room for parking, over the back fence is farmland. Don't be surprised to see quails and tui's. Outdoor fish filleting facilities perfect for that big snapper or scallops!
For those with mountain bikes there are some good rides and a number of lovely walks to neighbouring Crayfish Bay and Matapaua Bay. It takes about an hour to walk the half-moon shaped sandy beach from end to end.
Opito Bay is a very friendly family orientated place. Sports Day is held on the beach every New Years Day with sandcastle competitions, gumboot throwing, tug-of-war and running races. The perfect spot for the family holiday.
Located at the end of Black Jack Road, Opito is approx 30 minutes drive away from Whitianga and 40 minutes from Coromandel. The small settlement of Kuaotunu (at the start of Black Jack Road) is the nearest place for lovely coffee, pizza and the hugest ice creams ever! There is a local store there that is licensed to sell liquor and the very popular "Luke's Kitchen" for the best pizzas in the whole of the Coromandel!
Opito Bay is paradise and a great location for all, whether its time away relaxing with the family and friends, soaking up the casual beach atmosphere or serious fishing and diving time out around Mercury Islands.
