One of the world's most photographed beaches – Cathedral Cove is named after a huge arched cavern through white rock, joining two beautiful secluded coves. The beach is white sand, with waterfalls, rocky islets for jumping into the sea, and a background of shady pohutukawa trees.

Or scenic boat trips from Whitianga and Hahei which take you close but don't land there.
