Coromandel Peninsula Adventure Tours
Although the peninsula is close to large centers of population such as Auckland to the west and Tauranga to the southeast, its rugged nature means that much of the peninsula is relatively isolated, and the interior of the peninsula and the northern tip are both largely undeveloped and sparsely inhabited. A forest park covers much of the peninsula’s interior.
The peninsula shows considerable signs of vulcanism – it lies close to the line of volcanoes which stretch from the central North Island to the Kermadec Islands and is also close to the Auckland Volcanic Field, even though it has no active volcanoes of its own. Geothermal activity may be found on the Peninsula, however, with hot springs in several places, notably at Hot Water Beach, in the central east coast between Whitianga and Tairua.
