What people say

"This cove is a super popular place for everyone to visit and will require some effort to get there - but it's well worth it! The cove itself is free, but parking will usually cost some money. You can park at a few places along the way, but commonly people park in Hahei and either walk the entire way (a decent walk!), take the shuttle there, or even take a boat. "
"Cathedral Cove, also known as Te Whanganui-A-Hei, is a marine reserve on the Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand. It’s full of dramatic scenes and postcard-perfect views, which makes it an incredibly popular destination for tourists."
"Perhaps you recognise this spot from your Windows home screen? Cathedral Cove is currently only accessible by boat, but it's so worth the journey to see these crystal waters and incredible rock formations in person!"
