How to See the Coromandel in Two Days

What’s not to love about the Coromandel? Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach are plastered all over the covers of magazines and guidebooks around the world, making them two of the most popular destinations in the North Island of New Zealand.

But there is so much more to this peninsula, which sits just a few hours from Auckland. You would be hard pressed to explore all it has to offer in a single weekend. In our latest visit, we set out to do just that.

Our two-day itinerary for the Coromandel takes you to the most stunning places in the region (including some you may not have expected) and will inspire you every step of the way.
