North Island - Auckland & the Coromandel Holidays
Auckland is New Zealand’s largest and most multicultural city and is known as the City of Sails for its fantastic sailing opportunities. Rainforest covers the surrounding hills, dozens of dormant volcanic cones dot the landscape, wineries and beaches plus enchanting holiday islands scattered throughout the vast Hauraki Gulf mean this area offers something for everyone.
Just a few hours drive away, on the eastern coast of North Island lies the Coromandel Peninsula, an area renowned for its natural, unspoilt beauty. Native rainforests and pristine golden beaches fringed by a rugged coastline offer excellent opportunities for a host of activities including walking, fishing, diving, sailing, surfing and kayaking. Hot Water Beach lives up to its name when, during certain tide times, you can create your own hot pool by digging into the sands. The hot spring water bubbling up through the sand is the legacy of an exciting volcanic past.
