Opito is a lovely bay off the beaten track but well situated for many of the sights within the Coromandel peninsula. There's nothing to do in the bay itself other than to chill out and walk along the beach so those wanting to eat or drink out will need to take a 30 minute drive into Whittianga. Staying at Leighton...

We stayed at the Leighton Lodge and loved the "off the track" location; 3/4 of an hour over a winding gravel road that landed you at a B & B just back of a one km long bay and beach. The view from our room deck was beautiful. The room was very comfortable and the hosts were extremely helpful and...

My husband had always wanted to stay in Opito Bay, never having quite made it there before. It is spectacular. It is totally isolated at the end of a fantastic scenic drive which is only partially tar-sealed. Opito Bay has the most amazing beach to walk on where you hardly ever see anybody else out of season. The B&B is...

We had a very nice stay at Leighton Lodge. The Pacific Room was nice with a small ensuite and a lovely little patio with a million dollar view. We had a good continental breakfast and the hosts were very pleasant. There is a wonderful beach about a three minute walk from your door and in April the community is very...

We enjoyed a 3 night weekend in Opito Bay as part of a wedding, its a secluded lovely beach, great for swimming and quiet reflection. The accommodation was great, we had the self contained unit so some self catering was possible but thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and dinner meals provided. The hosts are friendly and helpful , all up a...

“If you plan to go you can arrange ahead of time with the owners to have dinner on arrival as there are no places to eat in Opito Bay. Opito Bay is populated with New Zealanders. It is very small as it is mainly set up as a place of summer homes that are mostly unoccupied during the cooler seasons. The Leighton Lodge B & B owners live there 12 months of the year.”
