Where is it?
Ngarimu Bay is a small bay with about 50 houses, 10 minutes from the historic mining town of Thames on the west coast of the Coromandel Peninsula. The peninsula is a top tourist attraction in New Zealand. Renowned for its beauty, beaches, hills, fishing, artists and craftspeople, there is much for the visitor to do. If you like walking there are many tracks for all levels of fitness in our enchanting rainforests. The Pinnacles walk and the Crosbie's Clearing walk both have modern huts to stay in overnight. You can even walk around the very top of the peninsula. A forty minute drive takes you to Coromandel to Driving Creek Railway and much more. On the east coast there are surf beaches.
The Hauraki Rail Trail has just opened and offers biking and walking trails from Thames to Paeroa, Te Aroha and Karangahake. If you are interested in tracing relations who came to the Coromandel, The Treasury is a repository of records and photos of Hauraki and Coromandel. On Saturdays Thames has a market featuring home grown produce, plants, crafts, and food. Across the firth are the Miranda Hot Pools and for sheer indulgence The Lost Spring at Whitianga is a special treat. You can snorkel or kayak in the marine park at Cathedral Cove and of course swim at Ngarimu Bay. Other activities are fishing charters, Harley Davidson rides, check out http://www.thecoromandel.com
