Cathedral Cove, Whitianga Reviews - Write a Review
Amazing place. Despite the poor weather we faced. It had amazing views. The drive up the mountain is quite scary with a campervan in the rain but well worth it. Also we made the trek down the trail to the beach front which takes approximately 30minutes in the rain. Made it challenging but well worth the experience. Also make sure to walk through the cove to the other side to see the rest of the view.
We went there at the end of our three week holiday. While it was beautiful it wasn't blowing us away. There's a 30-45 mine walk from the car park to the cove. The car park is tiny (and will be shut next year) and most likely you'll have to park in a car park in Hahei. They provide a shuttle service from there to the other car park for $5 a day. If you're traveling around NZ there's similar beaches to this one which are easier accessible - if you're going to Coromandel just for this it's not worth the extra detour.
Amazing place to spend a few hours. I took the water taxi from Hahei Beach. This offered amazing views of the cove and missed out the long walk. The water taxi is $15 each way and cards are accepted. Visa and MasterCard.
Was pretty cool to see the rock formations, but you can see better ones down in the south island for sure. Beautiful, and the drive from the east was nice enough to supplement this to make it a worthful drive
Excellent for an hour or four. Stingray bay next door am the same walk is spectacular and litres visited. A good walk there and back to stretch the legs.
