The Coromandel Peninsula on the north-east coast of the North Island of New Zealand has a small permanent population, but is a popular holiday destination year-round, and especially in summer. There are fabulous golden and white sand beaches with magnificent coastal scenery and a rugged, forest-clothed interior to be hiked. The peninsula, 85 km long, separates the Hauraki Gulf and the Auckland Region from the Bay of Plenty. Renowned for its natural beauty, green pastures, misty rainforests and pristine golden beaches, The Coromandel is blessed with hundreds of natural hideaways, making it an ideal place to escape.
