The Coromandel Peninsula has majestic mountains and a stunning, isolated coastline. With all the native bush and forests, this is one of the most beautiful, unspoiled regions of New Zealand’s North Island.
The winding roads and charming tiny townships hidden around make this once busy gold-mining and kauri-logging area a must-see.
And there are some natural wonders here that you won’t see anywhere else in the world. Hot Water Beach at Hahei is just one example.
Take a trip to the wonderful rock formations called Cathedral Cove or visit beautiful Whitianga and take a two-minute ferry crossing from there to Cooks Beach, a popular holiday spot that would take an hour to get to by road. Kayak and snorkel around secluded coves, or take an unforgettable one-hour train journey through lush Kauri forest on the Driving Creek Railway.
And when touring the peninsula, also be sure to visit Coromandel Township, a beautiful town with many quaint and older styled buildings that underline the laid back lifestyle here.
