This beach is breath taking. It is peaceful and away from the tourist area. Nice to walk along the beach and get amazing photos. Peaceful to sit there and watch the waves come crashing down or read a book.

Was staying in Hahei and started here for the Cathedral Cove walk. This part of the walk is much nicer/more natural (the path to Cathedral Cove is paved). Hahei is just the epitomy of vacation feeling...

Big beach, easy to get there. Another great scenery. We went there in the evening and there were only a few people. The water was delicious. And the ocean views were stunning.

Awesome white sand beach, perfect for a morning swim or relaxing in the sun. May struggle to find a car park on a busy day.

This walk leads to the cathedral cove walk. Pretty smooth and easy. No restaurants or cafes along the way, so pack your lunch and drinks.
