A special place in the Coromandel
NZ Surf & Stay is located in one of the most beautiful destinations within New Zealand, the Coromandel. Learn to surf with us, make our beach house your base for exploring our beautiful surroundings!
A slice of paradise
When searching for the perfect surf camp location in New Zealand, we could not believe how lucky we were to discover Whangamata and create our dream in this magical place. The long and beautiful main beach offers many waves for all levels of surfing. Surf teaching on these waves is inspiring and fulfilling as we see everyone have fun and progress so fast. When the swell is right, the famous “Whanga Bar” comes to life and surfers can enjoy the endless, perfect left handers.
Then there are the islands that are just waiting to be explored with our kayaks or stand up paddle boards. We are lucky enough to have access to one of the best kept secrets of the Coromandel, Whenuakura (Commonly known as Donut Island), with its blue lagoon and hidden beaches, it is truly a jewel of the Pacific.
