The Coromandel

A travel blog entry by carrhaughan


... is pretty nice, and the Leanne who runs it has a great sense of humour. We’re in the cheap "garden studio" which doesn’t enjoy harbour views, but does have a nice little garden for us to take advantage of the weather. We spend the rest of the day catching up on blogs, our plans for Asia, and suchlike, and also make some local plans for the next couple of days up here.

Our plans change the next morning though – we awake to find the ...

Coromandel, Hot Water Beach, Hahei Boat Ride

A travel blog entry by edsutch

It feels like the company are making a concerted effort to guide people away from turning their trip into a giant booze cruise and ...

Hot hot hot water beach!

A travel blog entry by cindy.thompson


... own spa. Unfortunately when we arrive the beach is pretty packed and everyone is clustered in one area. We try a less crowded spot but the water is cold so we can’t dig our own. But we wander over to the steaming pools that other people have dug and the water is literally scalding hot! It’s not warm water beach, it’s most definitely hot water beach! If you stand near the sea you get a nice mix of the hot water and the cold sea water otherwise you just ...
