Easily our favourite beach in New Zealand (and one of the best things to do in the Coromandel), New Chums Beach should be at the top of your list for your next trip to the Coromandel. Its seclusion and untouched beauty are attributable to its accessibility by short hike or boat only.
The unfrequented cove with white sand is unlike a lot of the popular tourist destinations within the Coromandel.
How to Get to New Chums Beach
The walk to New Chums Beach is 1km long and takes approximately 30-40 minutes. The track begins at the Whangapoua – New Chums Carpark.
There are no toilet facilities at the car park or beach. This makes new Chums more ideal for a shorter visit, such as a few hours rather than a day trip. Remember to use the bathroom facilities at your hotel room or Air BnB prior to travelling to New
