The geology here is quite breath-taking, and a walk around the rock behind the lighthouse (along a well-made path) is well worth the effort for the views both to the north and back past the lighthouse (at light le...
If you go the other way out of the car park at the end there's a nice stroll over cliffs to Deliverance Cove, which offers great views back to the lighthouse.

The 251 step climbs (I counted them!) up to the automated lighthouse provides you with superb views and we were fortunate enough to have an almost clear day, so that the hazy headlands in the South Island could seen.
A classic lighthouse perched high above the beach on a leveled off outcrop of rock, with 251 steps to the top.The view is spectacular.

The Natural Bridge is a quick 5-10 minute walk off of the Te Anga road and one of the most stunning sights we saw in New Zealand.
One can get an excellent view of the underside of this natural limestone arch , before (if desired ) ascending a solidly built wooden stairway to a higher level .

While much of the short walk is along a main (for Coromandel) road, the views from the cliff and the short but fun ferry ride make this walk an enjoyable couple of hours in Whitianga.
We visited this site from the cliffs on the Kiwi Dundee tour and saw the cliffs from the ocean on the Ocean Leopard boat tour.
