The Coromandel, it’s absolutely stunning. While the south island gets all the credit for being blessed with nature, visually stunning and perfect for exploration, the Coromandel, in the north, is wondering what all the fuss is about. If you are ready for beaches, perfect hills and some small town culture, here are just a few reasons why you should take the campervan up to the Coromandel. Make sure your Motorhome Hire NZ trip includes these beautiful mystical landmarks. Book Online Today!
Important Note: Motorhome Rentals are not allowed in many areas in Coromandel. So make sure you confirm with the information desks at the holiday parks prior to leaving for the destination.
Hot Water Beach
It’s pretty well known on the campervan trail and for good reason. Because it sits atop a natural hot spring, this beach has become famous for its ability to be turned into a natural hot tub. Bring a shovel (or two) and head to the beach when the tide is going out to start digging. There will be plenty of others there so make sure to come early to get a spot. When you feel the heat under your feet, you can start digging but just make sure not to get burnt as the water can be boiling. It is best to let your hot water mix with the incoming tide to get the temperature just right. After a lot of hard work, you will be sitting down and overlooking the waves in your very own hot tub.
It’s exactly what it sounds like, a cathedral like cove along the coast with lots of shade and crystal clear water. It is such a hidden gem that it’s actually a little difficult to get to and you will have to either take a shuttle bus, pay a residential home to park in their drive or fight for a spot in the small parking lot by the trail. Be prepared for a 30 minute, scenic walk that will take you down into the cove where it opens up into lots of sand and rugged rock formations. It really is a hidden paradise.

The Tiny Towns
Thames, Coromandel Town, Whitianga and Paeroa can all be found along the Coromandel route. These tiny towns are filled with culture from the mining days and have a small town feel that is often overshadowed by big cities these days. Stop in for lunch at a fish and chip shop in Whitianga, park the campervan at a site in Coromandel Town or visit one of the cafes for a coffee in Thames. For something a little more quirky, drop by Paeroa to see the large L & P bottle road side attraction and cafÃ©. Book your Motorhome Rental New Zealand holiday package today.
The Kauri Trees
These massive trees can be seen in groves that dot the Coromandel region and play an important part in the region’s logging history. Unfortunately, many of these trees are dying from a disease so the area is doing its best to preserve these towering bits of nature.
Trekking and nature walks are one of the top things to do when visiting the region. You can see marked trails all along the roadways that will take you into the forests and onto the beaches. One of the best options for walks is the Pinnacles which will take you onto the old tracks of the loggers back in the pioneer days.
