What You'll Get
Day 1: Auckland to Coromandel
Stop At: Wentworth Valley Road, Whangamata New Zealand
Our first stop on the Peninsula is Wentworth Falls, the two hour hike into these falls winds alongside the river through lush native forests before reaching the 130ft high waterfall. After a picnic lunch beside the river.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Whangamata Beach, Whangamata New Zealand
We embark on our next adventure, sea kayaking inside a hollow island! Whenuakura (Donut Island) is a wildlife sanctury not far off the coast of Whangamata Beach, the inside of the island was hollowed out over time until the roof collapsed leaving a stunning lagoon inside the island only accessible to kayaks or paddle boards through a narrow archway.
Duration: 2 hours
Accommodation included: Accomodation Whangamata
Day 2: Cathedral Cove
Stop At: Pauanui Beach, Pauanui Boulevard, Pauanui New Zealand
There are two options depending on your preference. You can join a surf lesson at one of New Zealand’s top surf beaches, or if you already surf jump in and enjoy the waves on your own! If surfing is not for you one of our guides takes a hike up Paku Hill, a viewpoint at the south end of the beach that offers stunning coastal views and scenery.
Duration: 3 hours
Stop At: Cathedral Cove Walk, 65 Grange Rd S, Hahei 3591 New Zealand
We explore Cathedral Cove, archways, sea caves, the surrounding islands and marine reserve with a boat journey before returning to Hahei Beach
Duration: 4 hours
Stop At: Ocean Beach Road, Hot Water Beach New Zealand
To experience Hot Water Beach we all don our swimsuits and hit the beach at low tide to dig our very own hot pool! This surreal beach has a hot spring flowing under part of it so if you dig a hole to trap the water you have your very own hot pool, on top of this the beach is a beautiful spot for swimming and relaxing.
Duration: 2 hours
Accommodation included: Accomodation Hahei
Day 3: Coromandel to Auckland
Stop At: New Chums Beach, Mangakahia Dr, Whangapoua 3582 New Zealand
For our last day we still have a lot to pack in, from Hahei we drive and then hike (30min each way) to reach the stunning New Chums Beach. Rated as one of New Zealand’s best beaches this white sand beach is the perfect place to enjoy a swim and snap some photos, it can only be reached by foot or over water so not many people get to experience this fantastic spot.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Waiau Kauri Grove, The 309 Road, Coromandel 3581 New Zealand
We travel to the historic gold mining town of Coromandel for lunch before exploring the serene Waiau Kauri Grove. This out of the way spot has some impressive species of the towering New Zealand Kauri Tree including the ‘Siamese Kauri’, two trees that have fused together over time to form a unique specimen. Kauri Trees are iconic to New Zealand and are in danger of becoming extinct in the near future due to a pathegon, so it’s very lucky to still be able to witness these forest giants up close.
Duration: 2 hours
