Fabulous golden and white sand beaches with magnificent coastal scenery, a rugged forest cloaked interior waiting to be explored, are just some of the natural attractions of the Coromandel. As a walkers paradise with a range of trails to explore, from short coastal walkways to multi day treks, the region will delight you at every turn.
Go for a swim, take a launch trip, sea kayak, be fascinated by the amazing seascapes of the marine reserves or visit an artists studio. The Coromandel became a mecca for hippies in the 60’s and 70’s so has a strong arts and crafts background that flourishes today.
The region has a rich mining history and there are plenty of opportunities to reflect on and learn more about that in one of the many intriguing museums.
Take in the annual Whitianga Scallop Festival if you can. Rock ‘n’ Rollers will love the annual Beach Hop at Whangamata – American muscle cars and rock ‘n’ roll!

Wairua Lodge began its life as a family home, was once an artist retreat and has now evolved into a stunning B&B. The lodge overlooks the rainforest and is more than your average B&B - here you can enjoy a soak in the Treetop Bathhouse or marvel at the stars in the outdoor Night-sky Spa Pool. Go for a walk on our well maintained trails or take a dip in one of the two swimming holes then relax in our hammocks or sun yourself on the beach. We offer a guest kitchen with bbq, microwave, grill and hotplate so you can make lunch or dinner - some people never even leave the property! The name Wairua Ora means "place of spiritual well-being" which seems to fit the place perfectly!
