Coromandel Peninsula

On the western side of the Bay of Plenty, with Auckland lying farther west across the Hauraki Gulf, the Coromandel Peninsula is dominated by a rugged mountain range of the same name. There are also several subranges that run the spine of the 80-kilometer-long (50-mile-long) peninsula. At its tip, the 892-meter-high (2,927-foot-high) Mount Moehau is sacred to the Maori and home to a remarkable diversity of flora and fauna, while coves dot the shoreline below.
