Katikati

Getting Here and Around

While remaining on the Pacific Coast Highway, head south from the Coromandel toward the Bay of Plenty. At Waihi, State Highway 25 switches and becomes State Highway 2. The next town you'll meet along State Highway 2 is Katikati, one of the few towns in the Bay of Plenty that is not built along the water. Neither a beach nor fishing town—Katikati is far better known for its agricultural bounty, and, of course, its murals.
