Coromandel Coastline

On a boat ride from Ferry Landing, we headed south around Cooks Bay idling near one unique rock formation after another. Sea caves were a common sight carved into the soft pumice and ash rocks by wind and sea. These very rocks resulted in the deep green and often aqua waters that hugged the coastline.

Gannets nested against the cliff face. Others bomb dived to retrieve food. Around each headland, lay another sandy beach bordered at both ends by more weathered rock formations.
