Famous for the rugged beauty of its sandy shoreline flanked by forested mountains, the Coromandel Peninsula is popular among locals and visitors alike. An easy way to get there from Auckland is by high-speed ferry, which takes you across the Hauraki Gulf on a 2-hour ride.
At booking, select the option that suits your schedule: choose a same-day return, a one-way ticket in either direction, or extend your stay and return to your starting point on another day.
No matter how much time you take at the Coromandel Peninsula, you’ll find warm hospitality at a selection of art galleries, boutique wineries, pubs and local restaurants. An array of outdoor activities include walking trails and bike tracks, birdwatching, fishing, kayaking and more — not to mention Cathedral Cove, where you can dig your own thermal pool at low tide.
Your ferry ticket includes a round-trip shuttle from Hannaford's Wharf to Coromandel town, located approx. 20 minutes away.
