Beautiful Cathedral Cove, with its famous gigantic stone arch and natural waterfall shower, is best enjoyed early or late in the day – avoiding the worst of the hordes.

From the car park, a kilometre north of Hahei, it's a rolling walk of around 30 to 40 minutes. On the way there’s rocky Gemstone Bay (which has a snorkelling trail where you’re likely to see big snapper, crayfish and stingrays) and sandy Stingray Bay . The walk from Hahei Beach to Cathedral Cove takes about 70 minutes. Another option is a 10-minute ride in a water taxi .
