Sightseeing Around the Coromandel
We are located close to many of New Zealand's top attractions
and some of the country's most spectacular scenery, including Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Whitianga and a plethora of white sandy beaches and marine reserves.
Cathedral Cove - the filming location of The Chronicle of Narnia - Prince Caspian - for the perfect day trip. Take a picnic and enjoy one of the many scenic walks in the area or take a dip in the protected marine reserve where you can experience some of New Zealand's spectacular marine life. Take a walk over the hill to Hahei Beach which is great for swimming.
hot water beach
Hot Water Beach is one of the most famous New Zealand attractions is located only 20 minutes from Pacific Harbour Lodge. Take a spade, or hire one when you get there, and dig a hole on the beach, when the tide is low, your hole will fill with hot mineral water - you'll have your very own hot pool! The ultimate time to visit Hot Water Beach is two hours either side of low tide.
