About 2 hours south of Auckland, over the Kopu bridge there is a Peninsula well-known amongst Kiwi holiday makers. The protecting arm that shelters the Hauraki Gulf from the Pacific, the Coromandel Peninsula is a veritable playground for campers, with wild beaches and sheltered coves, friendly small towns and stretches of wilderness, and a relaxed atmosphere that makes even those who live on it feel on holiday.
The Coromandel, as it is often called, is home to many treasures- Whangamata, Hahei and Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Mercury Bay, Port Jackson and the north, and the towns and Pohutakawa trees of the western coast. Have a look at Motorhome Road Trip for more!
