Yesterday we had an inquiry from a young woman over the phone asking if we did weddings? - not sure where that came from but maybe because we offer accommodation for the many weddings there are here in Waihi Beach. The beach has been known to have up to 6 weddings on any one day in the summer season.
I was able to point the young woman to the various options the beach had for wedding venues as well as the catering options, makeup, hair, flowers and accommodation options - plenty of choices here in Waihi Beach.
One day we had 4 couples booked in and we thought maybe they are all going to the same wedding - wrong - they all went to different weddings and one couple initially went to the wrong wedding - spotted that they knew no one there - so they left and went and found the wedding they should have been at - funny!
We also get asked about fishing charters - we don’t run them either but can book them in Tauranga or on the Coromandel out of Whangamata, Tairua or Whitianga. Years ago we had a guy working out of Waihi Beach as a charter operator but unfortunately, he died not long after he started so maybe that’s why we still get inquiries.
As always we are happy to point inquiries in the right direction.
