The Coromandel, renowned for its pristine beaches, misty forests and laid-back vibe, is one of New Zealand's most popular holiday destinations. The laid-back locals, golden coastline, abundant marine life and mountainous interior have long made The Coromandel a favourite holiday spot for kiwis. Enjoy a delightful ride through New Zealand native bush, crossing over one of the many viaducts, tunnels and spirals before reaching the terminus at the mountain top called the ‘Eyefull Tower’ that offers stunning panoramic views of the Hauraki Gulf.
