NZstays - Hightlights of Coromandel
The Coromandel`s fascinating history is evident in gold mining relics, logging dams and ancient Maori pa (fortified village) sites. The past can also be found in the charming colonial architecture and historical buildings preserved in several towns around the region. The coastal nature of the Coromandel makes it a brilliant choice if you like to fish, surf, dive , swim or wander along beaches. For contrast you can head for the hills and hike the trails in the forest.
Local cuisine could be as simple as fish and chips or as elegant as Crayfish Mornay . Cafes and restaurants make the most of the seafood that can be easily caught in the surrounding waters.
The inspirational natural beauty of the Coromandel has led to the area becoming a haven for artists and crafts people. Take time to discover the many galleries and studiosâ€”you`ll gain lasting pleasure when you purchase a piece of art directly from its creator.
