Voted as one of the 101 Must Do's for Kiwis. Hidden away from the masses and rarely explored by Kiwi’s is the spectacular ‘New Chum Beach’, which ironically has been voted as one of the world's top 10 beaches! New Chum was also voted 60th of the 101 Must Do's for Kiwis.
This stunning stretch of golden sand is fringed by Pohutukawa and native forest and is deserted for most of the year. New Chum beach embodies 'The Coromandel good for your soul.' This protected beach has no buildings, no roads, no infrastructure or camping - it is a jewel in New Zealand's coastal crown.
