Pirates of Bohemia

For the fifth summer running, the much-loved Pirates of Bohemia collective has “popped up” here at Waihi Beach. This year you’ll find them in a clever shipping container-come-gazebo ensemble in the grounds of the Waihi Beach Hotel. Stocking sustainable ladies’ dresses and beachwear, recycled treasures and custom-made jewelry, Willy Postma and her crew of nine local gals are all about sustainability.

Upcycling, recycling and vintage pieces are at the core of Pirates of Bohemia, who also offer organic henna, blue jaguar tattoos biodegradable glitter tattoos, hair wraps and Swarovski tooth gems. Open 7 days 10am-5pm, they’re basically a mini festival in a booth!
