Coromandel Beaches

Cathedral Cove

One thing you are not short on when visiting the Coromandel is beautiful beaches.  So many, so little time!  Must dos are, of course, Cathedral Cove although with so many thinking the same thing it loses it’s Wow factor when you reach the end of the 30 min walk to a crowded beach and look through the arch to see a beautiful white beach covered in kayaks!  Next time I intend to go very early or late in the day.  Don’t forget to visit Hahei beach before or after you hit Cathedral Cove, yet another lovely beach!

Hot water beach is an experience not to be missed.  A fabulous beach, it can be forgotten what a great expanse of beach there is when focus is the hot water fissures.  Bring a spade, or hire one there, and dig your own “spa” and see how long you can cope with the heat!

Wonderful Whangapoua

We thought to head to New Chums Beach, having heard it being rated one of the top beaches in the world, but we reached Whangapoua beach and thought that it wasn’t shabby at all and spent a wonderful day enjoying the white sand and beautiful water and watching the surfers along the way.  Bliss! Love the Coromandel!
