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. The Cove can be reached by foot (a 45-60-minute walk each way from the car park near Hahei) or boat (water taxi or sea kayak from Hahei). Or scenic boat trips from Whitianga and Hahei which take you close but don't land there.
