These are the most talked about locations on the Coromandel. From Shakespeare Cliff you have panoramic views of Whitianga all the way around to Cooks Beach and encompassing the islands beyond.

Cathedral Cove is our “hole in the rock”. A 45 min walk on a well sealed track takes you to the un-spoilt beauty of the Cathedral’s naturally formed arch. The walk is a mix of up and downhill so good walking shoes are recommended.

Hot Water Beach is the other must do. If you fancy a dip in a natural thermal pool, bring your togs. We will supply you with a spade and Tony will help you find the best spot to dig your own pool in the hot water that bubbles up from the sand. The views are there for us all. Lunch at a local café or vineyard is included.  Afternoon tea is supplied.  If you have food allergies it is recommended that you bring a suitable snack to have with the complimentary coffee.

Please note: Itinerary depends on tides at Hot Water Beach. There is a water taxi that runs from Hahei to Cathedral Cove. This is dependent on weather and availability and is not included in the tour price.

What to bring: Water, togs, towel, appropriate clothing and footwear, camera, sunblock
