The Hahei Beach walk will allow you to take in some of the most spectacular coastal views that NZ has to offer. From the distance, you can spot Cathedral Cove and from here, it is a nice and easy 45 min stroll towards the cove. Parts of the walk can get quite hot due to the lack of shade and... More

One of the prettiest and most useable beaches we have seen in NZ. North end of the beach the track starts for Cathedral Cove--about 1.5 hours. at the North Ends is a short walk to Te Pare for more stunning views.

Get up early and watch the sunrise over the South Pacific. Walk the beach before going into village for ice cream.

Stayed in the caravan park at Hahei. Took a walk up to the top of the Te Pare Reserve. Fantastic views over islands. Look south over the little cove, just beautiful.

A lovely safe swimming beach in a very pretty location. We attended for the annual Cathedral Cove swim. Hahei beach is the start and finish of this wonderful event.

Hahei has a nice beach, but it is the same as all the other nice beaches in the Coromandel! When we visited it was very busy and hard to get parked. We'd only return during the low season or early/late in the day to try and avoid the crowds.

This beach was so beautiful and the walk was perfect. Easy enough for kids but enough challenges to keep you engaged.

We called in here after being at Cathedral Cove and nearly didn't take the walk along the beach as it was late afternoon and the tide was coming in. With hubbys persuasion we did it and it was so worth the effort. Just a short stroll to see something different. There were still quite a few people on the beach... More
