Small Group Full Day Tour to Coromandel Peninsula from Auckland


Visit the stunning Coromandel Peninsula on this fun and scenic day trip from Auckland.


  • Convenient pick up and drop off to central Auckland accomodation
  • Small personalised group tour with a maximum of 12 people
  • Visit an area rich in native forest and white sandy coastline beaches
  • Walk beneath the breathtaking rock formation of Cathedral Cove
  • Dig your own hot pool and relax at Hot Water Beach

Renowned for its untouched native forests, white sandy beaches and breathtaking natural formations, the Coromandel Peninsula is simply a must see location when visiting New Zealand.

Your day trip will begin with a convenient pickup from your inner city accomodation and head south around the Firth of Thames Bay towards the Coromandel.

You will be accompanied by a passionate and experienced driver/guide who knows the area well, taking you to some very special spots on your one day trip. The Journey to the Coromandel passes through fresh native forest and along dreamy coastlines before reaching our first stop at Cathedral Cove.

Cathedral Cove is a breathtaking natural rock formation made famous by appearing in The Chronicles of Narnia movie! We take a short walk from the road and walk beneath the sweeping cove giving you the opportunity to take that perfect photo!

From here your tour guide will suggest a few spots close to Hahei or Hot Water Beach to stop for lunch. After lunch we head to Hot Water Beach - a very special geothermal beach that produces natural hot water from below. Dig your very own spa pool in the sand and relax on the beach, taking in the beautiful views of the coastline. Once we've had a decent soak we head back to Auckland, topping off a day trip to be remembered.

Worth visiting!

The driver was very friendly and funny! Our trip was perfect because of the nice Brazilian driver. We went to hot water beach and cathedral cove, and also dropped by some places which he recommend. In addition, there was only our group, so it was almost private trip. Thank you very much.

Very Enjoyable

My friend and I had a lovely day out on this tour. We are both in our mid 60s, fit and active, love adventures and meeting nice people. This tour fulfilled exactly what was described in the itinerary, there was flexibility and the driver was an absolute star. There were plenty of stops for refreshments (not provided) and bathroom breaks. There were 7 of us (including the driver) from 6 different countries so we had an interesting conversations also. By the end of the day some of us had exchanged details so that we can stay in touch. I recommend this tour.

Fantastic coromandel day tour

Had an amazing day trip to Cathedral Cove and Hot water beach. Our guide gabriel was very knowledable and took us to these places considering the tide conditions, so that we can make the best of our time at these 2 amazing locations which are the gems of the coromandel peninsula. Definitely recommended
