There are many tourist attractions to choose from in the Coromandel. A visit to one of the peninsula’s many pristine beaches (particularly on the east coast) is an absolute must. Cathedral Cove on the east coast (near Hahei & Whitianga) is one of many “must see” attractions on the Coromandel Peninsula. It is only accessible on foot or by boat/kayak and features Reefs of hard rock, intricate caves, soft sediments and underwater arches. Hot Water Beach (a short drive south of Hahei), is also well worth visiting. Other attractions include coastal and inland bush walks, Arts and crafts plus historic Goldmine visits. There are many water-based activities/attractions to enjoy including sailing, kayaking, swimming and snorkelling.
