Not the most upmarket of harbour/marina but still attractive and rather quaint. Very nice sports fishing club with good restaurant and a typical country pub across the road with a pretty good menu for casual meals.

Whangaroa Harbour is a great place to visit for some stunning views and scenery. Simply must be explored via boat to see the fantastic landscape and all the sights. Even better if fishing is your cup of tea!
