  • I spent three nights at a B & B in Whitianga and had ample opportunity to explore the beautiful Bay. There are many bays, which are crammed with tourists and you still can enjoy. Here, the locals are more likely. Who seeking rest and just want to enjoy, which is right here.

  • Lots of beaches to pull over and enjoy. Slow roads that require concentration. Beautiful views all over. Stop and enjoy  more »
  • Great views from Shakespeare point. Interesting Captain Cook visit in 1769. Was a hidden gem but watch the gravel road as may be dangerous in wet weathet  more »

Where to stay in Coromandel

The coastal road leading into town from the south has a fine selection of guesthouses and eco-focused hotels, all not more than a walk from the water. Head slightly farther back from the coast to find holiday parks and campgrounds with swimming pools, outdoor activities, and well-maintained grounds.
