The Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand’s favourite destination. The Coromandel is unique in so many ways. This area is blessed with wonderful climate and has some of New Zealand’s most amazing coastal views, golden and white sandy beaches and misty rainforest.
At Coromandel there is what’s called the “Hot water beach” ? a beautiful white sandy beach surrounded by native pohutukawa trees where you can dig your very own hot pool. All you have to do is dig a hole in the sand and wait for it to fill up with water, and there you have it, your very own spa pool. The forests have the tallest fern trees in the world, some reaching heights of 20 metres or more. The great quantity of fern species in the Coromandel gives the area a subtropical look and feel. You can even take one of the Glass bottom Boats and enjoy Cathedral Cove, Stunning coastal scenery, marine wildlife and even try your dab at snorkelling. These boats depart at 10.30am & 1.30pm from Whitianga wharf.
