New Zealand- North Island recommendations

Jump to last reply

We (myself, my husband and my sister) will be in the North Island from Nov 23-Dec 1. Planning on spending a day in Wellington, one for the Tongariro crossing, one for Rotorua or Taupo then two days in Auckland, wrapping up with 3 days for the Bay of Islands or Coromandel.

I'm looking specifically for recommendations of how to spend the last 3 days. We're hoping to spend it relaxing, seeing some beautiful beaches, and enjoying the locales. I've heard amazing things about the Coromandel peninsula and the Bay of Islands, but am wondering whether to try and do both? Also, where to stay and what to see in either places would be nice (ideally <$100/night).

Thank you for your help!
