Perched near the top of the North Island on the east coast of the stunning Coromandel Peninsular, Pauanui is one of New Zealand’s most spectacular tourist spots. Just an hour and a half by road from Auckland or Hamilton, Pauanui is the perfect place to escape for a few days or a few weeks. A delightful seaside resort town, Pauanui’s white sandy beaches and gorgeous coastlines dotted with New Zealand’s iconic Pohutukawa trees make it the idyllic holiday destination for couples, groups or families. Sailing, surfing, fishing, golf, tennis – Pauanui accommodation is all about leisure and pleasure and the Mercure hotel in Pauanui is a great choice. Take the ferry over to nearby Tairua for a day trip or if it’s that postcard perfect picture you’re after, walk to the top of Mt Pauanui for a breathtaking view. The Coromandel is a perfect holiday spot for those wanting to experience the best of New Zealand’s outdoor lifestyle – explore the many walking trails, hit the water with a boating or kayaking trip or just relax and enjoy the area’s beautiful beaches.
