Pekatahi is a small locality south of Whakatane in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand's North Island. The Whakatane River passes through Pekatahi as it flows northwards to its mouth on the Pacific Ocean.

State Highway 2 passes through the locality on its route between Awakeri and Taneatua, as does the Taneatua Branch railway line (currently disused).

Pekatahi is notable as being one of the few remaining locations of a road-rail bridge in New Zealand, as the highway and railway share a narrow single lane bridge across the Whakatane River.
