About Cathedral Cove

This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the peninsula, with remarkable rock formations, pure white sand and crystal-clear water. The huge arched cavern joins two impressive coves, so bring your camera and enjoy the spectacle. Hahei is the departure point for kayaking, diving and boat tours to Cathedral Cove. It can also be accessed via a walking track from Hahei. It's a one-and-a-half-hour walk via the secluded white-sand Stingray Bay and the rocky Gemstone Bay, with stunning coastal scenery along the way and plenty of picture-worthy views.
