There are amazing opportunities to travel to New Zealand with Interval. The Grand Mercure Puka Park Resort is located at Pauanui Beach on the secluded Coromandel Peninsula, 1 hour and 40 minutes from Auckland.

The accommodations include several Treehouse Suites nestled into native bush. The resort features tennis courts, a heated pool, a restaurant, and three miles of pristine beach.   

The Coromandel Peninsula on the North Island of Zealand is home to white sand beaches, dense forests, and wild mountains. Kayaking, surfing, hiking, and ziplining are popular activities here and the area enjoys a warm climate for most of the year. The New Zealand summer: October to March, is the busiest time to visit.   

Enjoy amazing views on the Pinnacles Trail or visit Cathedral Cove, made famous by The Chronicles of Narnia movies. The Coromandel is rich with amazing experiences including the Driving Creek Railway Explorer, a train passing high through mountain forests, over viaducts, and through tunnels. End your day of adventure at the Lost Spring in Whitianga with Geothermal Pools ranging in temperatures from 89 to 106 Fahrenheit. We look forward to helping you plan your New Zealand vacation!
