Our Coromandel Outdoor Adventures

Coromandel Walkway

Coromandel Walkway

The Coromandel Coastal Walkway and Cycle Path is a 10km easy grade route that offers stunning views of the peninsula’s rocky cliffs and azure blue bays – a definite must do.

Owharoa Falls

Owharoa Falls

While not exactly a must-do, this waterfall with its moss covered steps makes for some pretty photos. It’s also a great picnic/swimming spot on a hot day.

Hot Water Beach

Visiting Hot Water Beach

Like digging holes in the sand? Fancy creating your very own custom spa pool? If your answer’s yes then Hot Water Beach is the place for you. Spades optional but highly recommended.
