Cathedral Cove

A journey to the Coromandel Peninsula would not be complete without a walk to Cathedral Cove. It’s a healthy one hour walk (3 km) from our Resort, along the Hahei Beach up and over a well formed coastal walking track maintained by the Department of Conservation. The track is undulating with some stairs and very well maintained. On the way is the Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve, a great place to get up close and personal with marine life!

For more information go to the Department of Conservation website.

Scenic Walk at Te Pare Reserve
Pa Hill Walking Track

The well formed walking track is at the East end of Hahei Beach. The track is maintained by the Department of Conservation. For great views of the wild coastal landscape, Castle Rock Island and the Aldermans Island group.
The Pa site was the home of the paramount chief of the Ngati Hei tribe, who named Hahei.
Coastal walks at sea level below the Pa reveal more caves, sea creatures and fish. This is a great family activity, close to Hahei Holiday Resort.

Boat Ramp

Hahei Holiday Resort does not have a boat ramp. With a tractor or 4WD, you can launch small boats of up to 4 metres from the Hahei Beach at the Pa road end from the creek exit. Surf conditions and experience are the limiting factors. For larger boats or for a no-drama-style launch, the Purangi River mouth concrete boat ramp at Cooks Beach may be the choice.
