Cathedral Cove is now one of N.Z’s most popular tourist destinations.  Due to its location, the Cove is accessible only on foot, by boat or other water vessel.

Visit Cathedral Cove – Take a Walk!
There are a few options of walking to Cathedral Cove.

  • From the carpark at the top of Grange Road, the walk takes approx. 40 minutes each way.
  • From Hahei Beach, head north along the sand and take the side track up the side of the hill, approx. 10 mins, where you will join the track from the carpark.
  • From Jan-early February, we recommend using the Park and Ride facility located at the entrance to Hahei Village. The parking is secure and the service operates 7 days from 10am-6pm.

For your day out, we suggest you pack your togs, towels and sunblock.  And, of course you can always call in to see us at the Hahei Beach Cafe for a delicious coffee, cool drink, snack or just a chat!

Gemstone Bay
If you’re into snorkelling, you should investigate the Snorkel Trail at Gemstone Bay (10mins walk from the Grange Road carpark).  There are four marker buoys situated in the bay, all with handles and display panels, which identify some of the living creatures beneath!
