Don your favourite pair of sneakers and escape to real New Zealand as you walk the last frontier. Straddling the northern tip of the peninsula, the Coromandel Coastal Walkway is a true-blue Kiwi destination.
Quite why it took me so long to visit one of the most crazily beautiful locations New Zealand has to offer I’ll never know.

It's a walk that rivals any New Zealand Great Walk - but hardly anyone knows about it. Dramatic bluffs fall into crashing seas.
New Zealand is well known for its spectacular day walks and The Coromandel is home to some of the best panoramic coastal views New Zealand’s north island has to offer. The Coromandel Coastal Walkway is one of my favourite short walks, with its spectacular views and a relatively easy hike to get to them!
Ellie Hutchinson and her friend find wilderness and culture rubbing shoulders on a weekend in The Coromandel.
I don't ask for much in a short weekend getaway — sort me out with some bracing walks, a bit of art, stunning scenery, a few oysters, leaping dolphins and plenty of R and R and I'm happy. I found all of these in a 48-hour Coromandel break.
Undertaking the Coastal Walkway as a family excursion is a New Zealand Must-Do. Because of its rugged isolation, remote beauty and lack of distraction, the experience as a family is guaranteed to bond your group, making memories to last a lifetime.
