Anzac Bay

Anzac Bay at the southern end of Waihi offers good fishing, space to picnic and a lovely sandy beach.

At the southern end of Waihi Beach you’ll find Anzac Bay. An idyllic and peaceful harbour beach, it’s an awesome place for groups and families to spend a day. The beach is surrounded by a large grassy reserve with picnic tables and pohutukawa trees dotted around. Anzac Bay is also equipped with a boat ramp and a toilet block.

Fisherman frequent the rocks at the point, another popular spot for good fishing is around the corner at Cave Bay. From the Te Ho Pa Site, you’ll be able to enjoy a complete view of the bay stretching from Mount Manganui to the Coromandel Alderman Islands.
