The Coromandel, with pristine
beaches, native forests and laid-back vibe, is one of New Zealand’s most popular and
best-loved holiday destinations.
A binocular’s view across the gulf from
Auckland, the Coromandal is everything that a big city isn’t. Cloaked in native
rainforest with dazzling white sand beaches, it is rustic, unspoiled and relaxed.
Activities and attractions are plentiful. You might choose skydiving in Whitianga or a
guided sea kayak tour around the coast.
You could take a walk in the coolness of
the pristine bush - the Coromandel is a walker’s paradise – or simply sit and relax in a
warm bubbling pool at Hot Water Beach.
The Coromandel is the home of many artists
and craftspeople. Pop into their studios – you’re welcome to visit – and pick up a
unique piece of art or pottery to take home with you. It’s also the home of many events
and concerts that draw locals and visitors alike to this remarkable place. Staying in
the Coromandel is easy. Most of the accommodation providers have found themselves
spectacular locations so whether your tastes are for the upmarket or the simple, you’ll
find a room – or tent site – with an amazing view.
