The Coromandel, with its 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 Coromandel 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, from fishing and diving to hiking and cycling. You might choose skydiving in Whitianga or a guided sea kayak tour around the coast. For the more adventurous there’s Sleeping God Canyon, a 300m vertical descent down a set of waterfalls. The Coromandel is the home of many artists and craftspeople. It’s also the home of many events and concerts that draw locals and visitors alike to this remarkable place.

  1. Tuhua: a dormant volcano with a marine reserve off its northern end
  2. Go big game fishing, snorkeling or scuba diving
  3. Enjoy unique thermal mineral pools at Hot Water Beach
