Just 25 kilometres from Auckland, the Whangaparaoa Peninsula is a hidden coastal getaway perfect for a weekend away from the city or an extended break. Our Whangaparaoa accommodation
has all the qualities of a remote escape, without being more than an hour from the city centre.
The many bays, beaches and inlet’s that make up Whangaparaoa’s coastline are just a stones throw from our Whangaparaoa hotels
and offer a variety of water sports and water based activities to partake in. Ride the waves at Red Beach, or kayak the calmer waters of Gulf Harbour or up the adrenalin and take out a Jet Ski or powerboat.
The amazing coastal views can be seen from the many walks and trails along the peninsula that are easily accessible from our accommodation in Whangaparaoa. In the Maori language Whangaparaoa can be translated as Bay of Whales and pods of orca and dolphins can often be spotted from the shore.
While it may seem like an isolated spot on the peninsula, our Whangaparaoa accommodation does not remove you from civilisation entirely. There are many excellent shops, boutiques, restaurants and services available including a cinema and shopping centre in the township that has developed on the highland overlooking Stanmore Bay and Big Manly beach.
