Get to know Coromandel (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Coromandel.

A cute little place on the North Island of New Zealand, Coromandel is nothing more than a tourist town with a tiny supermarket that has all the basic products you need, and little tourist shops with nothing more than fishing gear and other water equipments. There is an ATM, and even a local bar, which is not much of a party but good for an afternoon drink. If you're lucky, they have a karaoke night. There are not many backpackers around here, but you sure have a good time.

Coromandel is not the place to be for a party, but it is the place to enjoy nature. Depending on what you prefer, Coromandel can be either boring or relaxing. It has no close beaches, unless you have a car (it's not the ideal place to travel without a vehicle). There are a few hostels in Coromandel and only one bus company, the InterCity, that will drop off and pick up at every single hostel around town. Coromandel hostels are well spread around town, but still close to everything you need because Coromandel is just a small place.

In Coromandel you find everything you need for a short stay, but there is so much more to see in the surrounds. It is an ideal stop over if you are on your way to Whitianga. The way to and from Coromandel is stunning, with loads of places to stop for a couple minutes to take pictures at the gorgeous scenic lookouts. There is only one road, so you cannot get lost.
