It’s a hard task to single out just a few attractions of the Coromandel Peninsula. This area of the New Zealand (in the central north of North Island) is blessed with so much beauty. Come with me on a wee tour of the attractions of the Coromandel Peninsula and see if you agree with me.
1. Cathedral Cove
This stunning beach always appears on lists of the best attractions of the Coromandel Peninsula but I have no qualms including it in mine because it thoroughly deserves the attention. Called Te Whanganui-A-Hei in the native language, the beach has plenty of features that beach bums and photographers especially will love. There’s a large natural archway and a huge pumice rock pinnacle known as Te Hoho. The sandy beach is lined by pohutukawa trees and the water is crystal clear. If that’s not enough, the beach sits in the Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve with plenty of reef systems and sponge gardens teeming with marine life.
