Take me to....
Fabulous golden and white sand beaches with magnificent coastal scenery, a rugged forest cloaked interior waiting to be explored, are just some of the natural attractions of the Coromandel. As a walkers paradise with a range of trails to explore, from short coastal walkways to multi day treks, the region will delight you at every turn.
Go for a swim, take a launch trip, sea kayak, be fascinated by the amazing seascapes of the marine reserves or visit an artists studio. The Coromandel became a mecca for hippies in the 60’s and 70’s so has a strong arts and crafts background that flourishes today.
The region has a rich mining history and there are plenty of opportunities to reflect on and learn more about that in one of the many intriguing museums.
Take in the annual Whitianga Scallop Festival if you can. Rock ‘n’ Rollers will love the annual Beach Hop at Whangamata – American muscle cars and rock ‘n’ roll!

Quality Assessments: In New Zealand independent Quality assessments of accommodation establishments are available, on a voluntary basis, by Qualmark, which has a star rating system, and by the New Zealand Bed & Breakfast Association.
Many properties choose not to participate in either of these schemes which should not be taken as any indication that they are not of an equally high standard as those that do. TrueNZ Guides does not carry out quality assessments and the inclusion of any property in this Guide does not imply or give any endorsement or standard. Individual properties have self assessed themselves as being suitable for inclusion in this Guide and TrueNZ takes no responsibility for their respective claims & descriptions.
