Coromandel weekender!

So, the day after arriving in glorious New Zealand, we were off and away for a long weekend in the beautiful Coromandel region of New Zealand. No time for jet lag here!! The drive up was absolutely gorgeous, taking you through lots of twists and turns in the mountains and then running alongside the sea for a large portion too.

We stayed in a lovely place called Matarangi, in a huge Bach (rental holiday home) which was beautiful and more than ready for the onslaught of 11 holidaymakers!

The Bach we stayed in can be booked via the Book A Bach website HERE and if you have a big group and are heading up that way, I would 100% recommend this as an excellent place to stay.

Although we spent most of our time out and about exploring other areas of the Coromandel, the Matarangi beach is a two minute walk from the house and the nearby town of Whitianga is a short drive away for stocking up and eating out.

So whilst we were in the Coromandel we visited numerous other beaches, including New Chums Beach and the Hot Water Beach, posts to come about these!
