Hop a train up the Driving Creek Railway through kauri trees and lush rainforest up to the Eye-Full Tower (get it? eye-full! Say it fast... har har!) for a great lookout over Coromandel Town.
If secluded beaches are your thing you might like New Chum's Beach. Be warned though, it's a bit of rocky hike to get there but worth the effort.
Have fun splashing in the huge waves at beautiful Cathedral Cove. Be warned - bikini tops have been known to fly off.
Scope out the right spot and dig your own personal hot tub at Hot Water Beach. Go a couple hours on either side of high tide and be selective where you dig so you get hot water. BYO shovel!
If you like surfing, head to Whangamata, one of the country's top surf spots. If you're feeling lazy, just come to perv at the surfers.
