You've seen it on every New Zealand Must Do and travel tips website, and now Cathedral Cove is on the doorstep, go and get the shot for your Instagram!
Walk, kayak, water taxi, or cruise; you choose; the options are on our doorstep, no need for the car keys or hassles of parking at Cathedral Cove Walkway. The world comes here to visit “The Cove,” our very own slice of Middle Earth made famous in the Chronicles of Narnia.
It's a 2-hour return walk from the Resort to Cathedral Cove, head onto the beach, turn left, and follow the Cathedral Cove Walkway signs. Take in the views of Mercury Bay and Hahei Beach from the top of the hill too. Simply stunning.
Take a towel, your picnic and a water bottle. Once you've got the shot for your Instagram, you'll love to linger. In summer, there is a surf patrol and heavenly white sands to soak up some sun after a swim.
Allow some extra time and stray off the main path to Stingray Bay or Gemstone Bay, our local secret treasures. Gemstone Bay is also great for snorkeling, and romantics beware, this spot will grab your heart!
If you want to book a kayak tour or the Hahei Explorer boat tour to see Cathedral Cove from the water, check the tour times and book at reception.
