Coromandel - Waikato
We made a quick stop here on our road trip around the North Island. There wasn’t much more than driftwood and footprints on this beach on the Coromandel peninsula.But, it is lovely place to relax and take a quick stop on your way. This peninsula is known for its quiet and lovely beaches lined with crystal clear blue waters.
