Coromandel Peninsula holidays - Gorgeous, lesser-known and enticing
Forming more than 400km of the north-eastern coast of New Zealand, the Coromandel Peninsula is an idyllic collection of misty kauri forests, rural farmland and tropical beaches. Often bypassed en-route to some of the better-known household names, the Coromandel region is truly breath-taking and worthy of exploring. This is a truly beautiful destination that deserves to be recognised.

Filled with charming towns, rich history and interesting people, Coromandel hosts an awe-inspiring array of must-see attractions and unforgettable experiences.
Bisected by jagged mountains into two regions, you can either explore the laid-back eastern side that’s brimming with white sandy beaches or the historic western side.
