Kuaotunu is a beautiful coastal village providing all the ingredients for a perfect lifestyle or an amazing holiday playground. Enjoy the ocean with safe swimming from the north facing white sand beach, surfing the famous blackjack reef, sailing or water skiing in the bay and excellent fishing snorkelling and diving options from the coastline to the idyllic Mercury Islands and beyond.
The Kuaotunu bay is also a popular place for friendly dolphins who frequently stop to play with swimmers. Discover the evidence of an exciting history amongst the surrounding native bush and rugged farmland. Several visible Maori pa sites stand guard atop the hills and headlands and a huge network of underground mines tell the tale of a thriving gold mining community which once boasted two Hotels. Visitors are well catered for with a general store, coffee shop/gallery, various lodges and a camp ground. If you like to venture further Kuaotunu is perfectly positioned central to neighbouring Coromandel Peninsula settlements and attractions.
