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.
