Day 2

Rise and shine for a sunrise hike for the next leg of the journey on the coromandel walkway. This is real and rugged NZ that’s worth getting up for. A drive down to Kuaotunu via a very special beach break. Kick back in the sun with a local craftie and a hearty feed, you deserve it.

Day 3

Making the most of the day it’s another early start to arguably NZ’s favorite beach, Cathedral Cove. Then it’s shovels out to to dig your own hot pool on hot water beach.
