Auckland: Coromandel, Cathedral Cove & Hot Water Beach Tour

1. Auckland: Coromandel, Cathedral Cove & Hot Water Beach Tour

Begin the tour with a pick-up from your hotel in a comfortable minibus equipped with WiFi, charging ports, and onscreen entertainment. Be taken on a scenic drive through the New Zealand countryside as you head to the incredible Coromandel Peninsula. Head to your first stop, Cathedral Cove, a spot featured in the film the Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Cathedral Cove is one of New Zealand's most famous and beautiful beaches, and is a must-do activity for any visitor to New Zealand. As there are no roads to this beach, take a 40-minute bush walk to get there. Upon arrival, take some time to relax, sunbathe, swim, play sport, or just soak in the spectacular views. Later, enjoy time for lunch at a restaurant where you can try some local food, and can even have a beer if you choose (food and drinks not included). Continue to your next stop, the famous Hot Water Beach, where you can dig a hole in the sand to create a naturally-heated geothermal water bath. Finally, it's time to make your way back to Auckland, but not without stopping for a quick ice-cream and some more photos.

We had a great trip and really enjoyed the beaches and walking trails around Coromandel. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and supportive. We hadn't anticipated the challenging walk to Cathedral Cove, but it was well worth it.

The tour guide was really knowledgeable and helpful to everyone. We enjoyed it a lot. I would strongly recommend visiting these two places. Overall, our experience with the tour agency was smooth and satisfying.

Amazing experience with a great guide, group, and activities. Our guide was fantastically efficient and I can’t wait to book more tours with Cheeky Kiwi!

My partner and I really enjoyed this tour. It was beautiful, fun, active, and with lots of interesting facts.

If you like lord of the rings, you’re gonna love it!
