Coromandel Travel Planning
Facts about Coromandel with location information
Rustic, relaxed and unspoiled, the Coromandel is one of New Zealand's best-loved vacation destinations. The rugged volcanic hills are cloaked in native rainforest, and with more than 400 kilometres of spectacular coastline, travellers can be assured of finding the beach of their dreams.
A 20 minute walk, or a guided kayaking trip, will bring you to the white sands and arches of Cathedral Cove. It's an idyllic place to swim, snorkel, picnic or simply relax under the pohutukawa trees.
Hot Water Beach
This beach lives up to its name. For two hours either side of low tide, you can create your own hot pool by digging into the sands. The hot spring bubbling up through the sand is the legacy of an exciting volcanic past.
The 309 Road
From 'The 309 Road' you can walk to the foot of the Waiau Falls, where the Waiau River crashes over a rock face. Another 10 minute track will take you to the 309 Kauris, the finest stand of kauri trees in the region.
