New Zealand's Coromandel Peninsula is a treasure trove of natural beauty, adventure and culture. The landscape offers pristine white sand beaches for lazy days relaxing in the cool (or hot!) coastal water and unspoilt native bush for short walks or mountainous treks. There is a range of action packed activities to entertain thrill seekers and a thriving arts and crafts scene for culture junkies.
You can plan a visit to the Coromandel during any season. The summer months are great for enjoying the surf and sand. You’ll have the place to yourself in the autumn, winter and spring, which is the perfect time of year to enjoy quiet walks on the Coromandel’s pristine white sand beaches. The Coromandel is a very popular summer holiday destination and with Auckland just a few hours away, it can get quite busy during the peak season. If you come around Christmas and New Year’s, be sure to book your accommodation far in advance!
There are two Kiwi Holiday Parks within the Coromandel region and another located just outside the Coromandel, each providing the perfect home away from home for weary travellers. With unparalleled facilities and all the beauty of the Coromandel right at your doorstep, it's no surprise that these holiday parks are incredibly popular year-round.
