Relaxation at Waters Edge

Mooring Lane occupies an historically significant site near Ferry Landing Wharf which is 200m across the harbour from Whitianga township
A small lane descends through native Pohutukawa trees to beach level and rises to the lodge.
The location is a spectacular sheltered sanctuary where you can park your car and experience what “The Coromandel” has to offer … much of which is free of charge. Mooring Lane is a unique location to absorb the Kiwi Way and the feel of summer in New Zealand.
Take some time out for yourself to understand why ”THE COROMANDEL IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL”

If you can … give yourself an extra day
