We encourage you to enjoy your time in Whangamata during the Run Walk festival. Whangamata and its environment is an exciting and wonderful place to be all year round. Famous for its unique combination of beach and rainforest, both worlds provide activity choices:  spectacular beaches for swimming and surfing, a safe harbour for boating, water skiing and kayaking; the estuary for swimming and kayaking;  the bush clad hills for walks, tramps, historical gold mine sites and mountain biking.
