New Zealand - Coromandel Peninsula (Chapter)
This is the Coromandel Peninsula chapter from Lonely Planet's New Zealand guidebook.
The Coromandel Peninsula offers easy access to splendid isolation. Its dramatic, mountainous spine bisects it into two very distinct parts. The east coast has some of the North Island's best white-sand beaches, while the west coast has long been a refuge for alternative lifestylers.
