"Coromandel Peninsula" Coromandel by kiwiwahine

Coromandel Travel Guide: 173 reviews and 580 photos

The Coromandel Peninsula Region can be said to stretch from Te Aroha and Katikati in the south, through Paeroa and Thames, west to Ngatea and Miranda, east to Waikino, Waihi, Waihi Beach and Bowentown and then onward to Coromandel, Colville and the tip of the Peninsula. On the eastern side of this scenic finger of land (including Cook's Coast) there lies some of New Zealand's finest beaches and holiday resorts with romantic Maori names such as Opoutere, Onemana, Otama, Opito, Whitianga, Whangamata, Tairua, Pauanui, Matarangi, Kuaotunu to name just a few. The Hauraki Gulf and the Firth of Thames, rich with bird and sea life, occupies the western shores and creates a boating and recreational paradise.

    Your pictures are awesome, and I want so badly to go see these sites. Do you know if it's ok to take dead beach shells, etc? Looking forward to seeing more of your pages... w
