Coromandel

A Paradise Haven

Renowned for its natural beauty, green valleys, lush native rainforests and pristine golden beaches, this coastal paradise in New Zealand is an ideal place to escape.

The Coromandel is one of the popular holiday destinations of the North Island of New Zealand. Located in the Waikato Region, north of the Bay of Plenty, the Coromandel Peninsula is largely an untouched paradise with gorgeous bays and beaches and countless natural attractions.

Known as the ‘Gateway to the Coromandel’, Thames is a historical town with landmarks, museums and hot springs. In Mercury Bay, is the main town of Whitianga with a deep Maori heritage, forest walks, beaches, water sports, scenic flights and boat cruise showcasing Mercury Bay’s stunning coastal paradise. The town of Whangamatā is famous for its surf breaks, white sand beaches, fishing, coastal scenery and hiking in the nearby Coromandel Forest Park.

A highlight for visitors is the ironic rock archway of Cathedral Cave, located in cliffs at the northern end of pristine Waipati Beach. Favoured by intrepid adventurers and sight-seers alike is the unique Hot Water Beach. Here you can dig your own hot pool and soak in the naturally heated mineral waters bubbling up through the sand.

The Coromandel region is a paradise for hikers, with trails coursing through spectacular scenery. Experience the natural beauty of misty rainforests on the Coromandel Coastal Walkway or the Karangahake Gorge Historical Walkway where you can learn about the area’s gold mining heritage. Explore the Pinnacles walk, one of New Zealand’s most popular overnight hikes, and the 200km Hauraki Rail Trail which showcases some of the best scenery.
