Coromandel is named after the HMS Coromandel, which sailed into the harbour in 1820.  At one time it was a major port serving the peninsula's gold mining and kauri industries.  Today, the town's main industries are tourism and mussel farming.

Coromandel Harbour is a wide bay on the Hauraki Gulf guarded by several islands, of which the largest is Whanganui Island.

"Coromandel" is the English version of "Chola Mandalam" which means the land of the Cholas.  The Cholas were a dynasty of Kings that ruled the Southeast coast of India for centuries.
