6 Coromandel Peninsula beaches what to see and getting there

Getting around and what to do nearby here’s the list for 2021. Coromandel and beaches are synonyms for each other. There is a list of six firm favourites where baches dot the hills and locals travel from all parts of New Zealand for the summer rite of a beach holiday.

What is the best time to visit the beaches?

Between December to mid-April however year round there is plenty to do and see.


In spring the bright red pohutukawa trees are in bloom creating a memorable drive from Thames to Coromandel Town as well as throughout the peninsula. The beaches are alive with holiday makers, sailing boats and kakakers.

The beaches are free to enjoy.

The glorious memorable moments are free, from beaches to easy lazy days walking nearby bush tracks. Of course you can always splurge on beautiful artwork or an exciting dive adventure in the Aldermen Islands. For families consider a Whitianga cruise around the bays to Cathedral Cove and Hahei beach. Or perhaps catch a tax. For details on what to do nearby check what’s so great about Hahei.
