  • Is your private beach next to the property or do I need to use a means of transportation to go there?
    Beachfront Resort is right on beautiful Buffalo Beach. You access the beach directly from our garden. Buffalo Beach is the largest beach in Mercury Bay. Whitianga township is at the southern end and Beachfront Resort sits about midway along. It is a public beach, available to all, but only very few properties are fortunate to enjoy direct access onto it.
