Pauanui is situated on a narrow stretch of land bordered on one side by the Pacific Ocean and on the other by the tranquil Tairua Harbour. Our Pauanui accommodation
provides the perfect base for your holiday to the beautiful harbour side town of Pauanui, whether it is a weekend escape, family vacation or extended getaway.
A stay in one of our Pauanui hotels
provides the ideal mix of beach, bush, activity and coastal charm to create an idyllic holiday for you or your family at the base of New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula. The three-kilometre stretch of white sand and clear blue water can offer great surfing, kite surfing and windsurfing, if the wind is blowing in the right direction, or a scenic place to relax with a good book regardless.
For something active to do while staying in a hotel in Pauanui, try a trek of Pauanui Mountain. Start at the southern end of the beach and follow the winding trail all the way up to the summit of the forested peak. Pauanui Mountain reaches a height of 400 metres above the sea, and while the track is steep in places the panoramic views of this spectacular location is well worth the effort of the climb.
For calmer waters during your stay in our Pauanui accommodation, head to the inland side of Pauanui, where the peaceful harbour and estuary offer hours of fun for kayakers. The harbour also offers a more sheltered swimming spot then the beach, as long as you keep an eye out for the boats that frequent the harbour.
