Cloaked in native rainforest, with dazzling white-sand beaches and picturesque coves, The Coromandel is a favourite holiday spot for New Zealanders and visitors alike.
Take the shorter route across the base of the peninsula, or the scenic drive along the Firth of Thames. Whichever route you choose, allow time to visit two of Coromandel's must-see attractions. Cathedral Cove is a picturesque photo spot, and at Hot Water Beach you can dig your own natural spa.
You can see both these attractions in one day - but you'll need to time it carefully, as you need to be at Hot Water Beach within two hours of low tide to access the naturally heated water.
