The Coromandel Coastline is rugged, natural & supremely beautiful to behold.
We journey now, to the north eastern coast of the North Island, to where rolling waves and far stretches of soft white sand form the stunning Coromandel Peninsula. Home to many kiwi holidays, and beautiful natural wonders, this stunning coastline awaits you.
We caught up with Howick-based Travel Adviser Michelle Sutton, who has an impressive 19 years in the industry, to chat through her favourites and suggestions in the Coromandel!
Starting from the wide stretches of Cooks Beach, Hahei and Cathedral Cove, you'll find that the upper north of the Coromandel boasts clear, calm water and amazing soft, white sands that are perfect for relaxing. You'll find a plethora of nature works also surround these areas, making them ideal for a reclusive and relaxed getaway. If the hustle and bustle of town-life is more to your fancy, and you still prefer to have some consistent interaction in your day, then heading to the more often-visited towns such as Whangamata, Pauanui or Tairua can be the perfect way to experience it all. This way you're only a short drive from most of the stunning beaches, coastal walks and other experiences that await. No matter how you wish to relax in summer, you'll find the Coromandel has everything you'll need and more!
