Coromandel Peninsula

Get off the beaten path to this lonely beach studded peninsula. Dig your own hot pool in the sand at Hot Water Beach. Kayak to a secluded beach under a rock arch at Cathedral Cove. Walk easy paths to beaches you have all to yourself. This stretch of fresh air and warm, tiny bays has little in the way of luxury accommodations and dining. Instead, it’s a place to take the rental car down narrow dirt roads past hidden waterfalls to charming small town resorts and B&Bs.
