Tairua Marina.jpg


Tairua, Coromandel Peninsula, Waikato, NZ

The Tairua Marina is located on the east coast of the Coromandel peninsula, between Whangamata and Whitianga.

Easily accessible in around 1.5hrs drive from Auckland, Hamilton & Tauranga. 


Tairua is one of the most beautiful spots anywhere on the Coromandel peninsular, a small town of some 1350 permanent residents.  A huge soft sandy beach with some great surfing breaks is one of the best local features and a stunning backdrop view up the main river towards the hills is just as good as it gets.

Tairua has some great accomodation on offer from comfortable quality Motels to B&B's, holiday bach's and backpackers.
