With kilometres of majestic coastline, the Coromandel is a popular summertime spot for New Zealanders and visitors alike.
Your clients can explore hidden bays or the many walking and cycling tracks in the area. Charming old-world towns in the rugged hills will connect them to the past and its people. Just a couple of hours from Auckland, it is the ideal place for your clients to recharge their senses.
The best of the Coromandel
- Whanganui A Hei (Cathedral Cove) – Your clients can get to this beautiful arched rock cavern and beach via a boat or kayak tour. Suggest they take a glass-bottom boat to the cove through the surrounding marine reserve.
- Soak in a natural hot pool – At low tide, your clients can dig their own spa pools in the sand at Hot Water Beach – a truly unique Kiwi experience. Alternatively, The Lost Spring offers ready-made natural mineral water hot pools and relaxing spa treatments.
- Gold mining history – The town of Waihi is home to a fully operational gold and silver mine. Visitors can view the mine from the viewing platform or learn about goldmining at the Gold Discovery Centre.
- Walking and cycling – Your clients can enjoy numerous biking, walking and hiking options such as the popular overnight walk to the Pinnacles, the scenic Coromandel Coastal Walkway and the historic Hauraki Rail Trail.
- For a more relaxing way to travel, why not book your clients on a ferry from Auckland CBD to the Coromandel (or vice versa). Once they arrive, Coromandel Adventures can arrange transport and custom tour packages.
- Remind your clients they will need a shovel to dig their personal spa pool at Hot Water Beach. Accommodation providers will usually lend or hire these to guests.
