Day 2: Coromandel to Waitomo

Lets get beachy!

If you've opted to add on a Cathedral Cove Cove Kayak trip this morning, you will have time to eat breakfast before walking down to the kayak tour starting point. Take your water bottle, your camera and get ready to see some amazing views – and maybe even some dolphins!

The rest of the group will walk out together along the cliffs and down to Cathedral Cove (which you might recognise from the Chronicles of Narnia). With perfect beaches and massive rock arches and columns, it’s one of the most popular spots in the Coromandel.

Later today we say goodbye to the east coast and hello to the west as we head for the tiny town of Waitomo. If you can’t wait until tomorrow to meet the resident glow worms, you will see a few of them along the banks of tonight’s optional loop walk through a forested gorge, This is New Zealand's native bush and it's spectacular – even in the dark!

Tonight you could also kick back with a beer and admire the stars – they put on a great show here when the skies are clear.
