Situated just over one hour from Auckland City, Whangateau Lodge is smack in the middle of one of the region's favourite coastal playgrounds. The diversity of attractions and activities in the area means there is something for everyone. Foodies and wine lovers are well catered for, with nearby Matakana Markets and a number of cafes and restaurants, vineyards and artisan food producers.
Activities near to the lodge include scenic walking tracks, and there is rumoured to be great fishing nearby (although you may wish to check the locations of the local marine reserves before you drop your line in). For those who wish to venture further afield, nearby beaches include Matheson Bay, Pakiri and Omaha Beaches, with marine reserves at Tawharanui Regional Park and Goat Island just a short drive away.
