With around 400km of coastline and over 100 offshore islands, The Coromandel is one of New Zealand’s favourite marine playgrounds.
Enjoy time to explore our beautiful coastline. The snorkelling and swimming opportunities in Te Whanganui o Hei Marine Reserve are plentiful, especially in the shallow waters around Stingray Bay (Te Karaka) and the western side of Mahurangi Island. Gemstone Bay (Waimata) has a snorkel trail marked by buoys that illustrate the marine habitats and associated species that live beneath.
Offshore Islands, Aldermen and Mercury Islands provide some of New Zealand's best diving experiences.
