Must dos in The Coromandel

Some of New Zealand's iconic places can be found here in The Coromandel, and many visitors will come especially to see these first.  From the world-renowned Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach to one of the country's best day hikes up The Pinnacles, and the deep and steep Karangahake Gorge, the variety of experiences across the region are showcased in these four places alone.

There are some additional locals' favourites that are worth adding to your list. Cycling the Hauraki Rail Trail, sampling homegrown food along the way, taking selfies at the L&P bottle in Paeroa and catching the train from Waikino to Waihi will be highlights that you'll tell your friends about. At the other end of the peninsula, the last Coromandel frontier is connected by the Coromandel Coastal Walkway where the splendid isolation of the place will be keenly appreciated

We encourage you to venture a little further.
