This slow-paced town on the Coromandel Harbour is a great place to base yourself while exploring the Coromandel Peninsula.

With so many outdoor activities at hand, all you really need from this gateway to the gorgeous Coromandel Peninsula is comfortable accommodation, lovely cafés and well-stocked shops. But, true to its generous nature, the town of Coromandel offers much more than that. Its hilltop forests hide tall kauri trees and its picturesque bays are brimming with seafood. Chilled Pacific oysters, hot clam chowder or a steaming mussel pot anyone? Come and eat your heart out in Coromandel.
