    This area of the Coromandel Peninsula is an area of stunning beaches and bays. Gorgeous azure blue waters roll onto clean white sands, while hills shelter the bays and further enhance the scenic splendour of the area. Mercury Bay is a very popular holiday destination and during the summer months the population swells considerably. For the rest of the year a relaxed, away from it all, atmosphere prevails. Otama Beach has few houses, protected dunes and an amazing white sand north facing beach Otama. This is one of the more untouched beaches on the Peninsula. The glistening white sand squeaks as you walk on it and the beautiful clear waters are perfect for swimming and snorkelling and offers good surfing conditions. The beach is backed by a protected wetland nature reserve and rolling dunes with a small collection of houses and beaches at each end.
