With a name like “Big Shark,” some travellers may hesitate to bunk down in this New Zealand resort area, but the quaint village shops, endless recreational options and welcoming Mangonui hotels swiftly convert any waffling visitors. Located on Doubtless Bay near other popular holiday spots, Mangonui offers a broad selection of enticements, from shopping to diving, for those keen enough to make the trip from Auckland or further.
Any trip from your accommodation in Mangonui must start at the Butler Point Whaling Museum. Discover the history behind this once booming fishing port and whet your appetite for tasty seafood treats. Swing by Waterfront Drive to explore the shops and cafes to slake your hunger for gifts and souvenirs while enjoying a gentle bay breeze. Once sated, make plans to hike in the lush Herekino Forest or head to Coopers Beach for some boat drinks on the sand. Cable Bay and Taipa are located just a little further, and they offer their own selection of resort amusements.
Find fabulous Mangonui accommodation with HotelClub’s prestigious travel rewards program to save money and enrich your holiday experience with upgrades and premium service. Once you’ve squirreled away your bonus money, use it to rent some fishing poles and catch some local snapper.
In order to arrive at the best Mangonui accommodation in reasonable time, fly into the Auckland International Airport and transfer to Kaitaia Airport. From there, hire a car and drive half an hour to the city centre or jump on the InterCity bus, which stops on Waterfront Road
