Whitianga is especially favoured as a holiday resort among big-game fishing enthusiasts. For other holiday-makers, the town offers fine beaches, seafood restaurants, launch trips and a variety of other water-based activities. A ferry regularly crosses the narrow waterway to Ferry Landing, the site of an old stone wharf built in 1837. From the wharf it is possible to do a few pleasant walks.
