Coromandel Peninsula and the Bay of Plenty: Places to Explore

Colville and Beyond

To reach land's end in the very north of the Coromandel Peninsula—with rugged coastline, delightful coves, and pastures—take the 30-minute drive from Coromandel up to Colville. The town has a grocery store–gas station, post office, a community hall, and café. There is also an interesting Buddha shrine, or stupa, by the Mahamudra Buddhist Centre on the drive in and public toilets with a mosaic worthy of a picture. Colville is the gateway to some of the peninsula's most untamed landscape. Maps of the area are available in Coromandel at the Town Information Centre and in Colville at the General Store.
