Waihi Beach & Coastline
With 9 km of beach to choose from there are plenty of places to go paddling. If the surf is too big for your level of skills then head to the calm and sheltered Tauranga Harbour waters at Anzac Bay. Be mindful of the strong currents on an outgoing tide. There can also be whirlpools in the area out from Anzac Bay and a rip between Shelley and Anzac Bays.
