Unwind at The Lost Spring Thermal Pools
The most relaxing way to spend a day in the Coromandel is a visit to The Lost Spring spa. Just entering through the gates you’ll feel far away from the world around you. Amongst lush gardens and a canopy of tropical trees, soak in the rejuvenating hot pools. Enjoy poolside service, from delicious platters to cocktails. A one-day tour includes both ferry and coach transportation, so you can truly unwind.
Take in sea views from the Eyefull Tower Lookout
Hop aboard New Zealand’s only narrow-gauge mountain rail train, the Driving Creek Railway and Potteries. The one-hour ride climbs through native bush, crossing tunnels and spirals, before arriving at an epic lookout – aptly named the Eyefull Tower for the sweeping views over the Hauraki Gulf. Plus, spy hidden pottery and sculptures along the tracks. A must-do experience in the Coromandel!
Long Bay Beach - Just Around the Corner from Coro Town
The closest beach to Coromandel Town, Long Bay is the perfect place to relax or picnic without straying too far from the township’s amenities. Just 3km away, at low tide it’s even closer - take a short walk across the sand flats to Long Bay Motor Camp. If you’re up for a longer walk, continue to Tucks Bay and then to the Kauri Grove track.
The Secret New Chums Beach – One of NZ’s Best!
Hidden away on the Coromandel Peninsula, New Chums Beach is accessible only by foot. The 30-minute track from Whangapoua Beach is well worth the journey, crossing a tidal stream and hopping over rocks. You’ll be rewarded by complete isolation on a golden stretch of sand. Join us on the New Chums Beach Explorer Tour, enjoying a scenic drive over the mountains from Coromandel Town.
