Top Romantic Spots in New Zealand

Planning a romantic getaway is always a challenge. You always aim to make your partner or spouse feel amazed, with butterflies in their stomach, reminding them how it felt like when you first went out on a date. If you have set your eyes on New Zealand, you should know the most romantic spots to visit in the country.

Cathedral CoveCoromandel Peninsula

The Coromandel treats its visitors to the raw beauty of the forests and untouched beaches. Couples can take a walk during sunset from the northern part of the Hahei Beach until they reach the famous Cathedral Cove. It’s a must-have to take a commemorative shot of the place, matched by the sandy beach and the shade provided by the Pohutukawa trees.


A must-visit is the Mud Spa in Hell’s Gate, which is where you will enjoy 700 years of European and Maori cultures. This place also treats tourists to steaming fumaroles, erupting waters, mud volcano, boiling mud, and the biggest waterfall in the Southern Hemisphere. If you want to remind your love of your hot romance, taking them to this place will likely be an effective reminder.


Couples who want to give their anniversaries an exciting twist can take the leap with a bungee jump in Queenstown. The Nevis Bungee is known for being the highest bungee jumping point in Australasia. You can prove your willingness to share each other’s fear and excitement by taking the jump together.

Couples would love the Waiheke Island Wine Tours. You can also take a short ferry ride across the Hauraki Gulf and take in the view of the Waiheke Island, as well as the top three vineyards in the island. Enjoy the tour even more with a glass of wine.

Marlborough Sounds

The Classic New Zealand Wine Trail is something that couples shouldn’t miss in the region. Savour the tour more with a bike ride to the vineyards. The ride will get your appetite worked up so you can enjoy the different flavours and wine that Marlborough Sounds has to offer.

History buffs will love Waitangi. It was handed over to more than 500 Maori chiefs by the British Crown in 1840, when both parties signed the Treaty of Waitangi. Aside from its rich history, the place also has a lot of offer, from the Treaty House and its garden to the Haruru Falls.


Shoppers adore Auckland because of everything that it has to offer this crowd, from the open air street markets to the most respected designers. Couples can also feel like young lovers again as they try the restaurants, bars, clubs, and cafes in the area. Those who really want to see more of the city can go to the Sky Tower. There is also the exciting Orbit, a 360-degree revolving restaurant, the Sky Jump, or the SkyWalk around the pergola of Sky Tower. But your Auckland vacation won’t be complete without visiting the Rangitioto Island, the biggest yet the youngest volcano in Auckland that gives you a 360-degree view of the entire region as you stand on its 26-metre-high summit.
