When visiting coromandel, this is the best beach where you can swim comfortably and enjoy the waves of the sea and picnic with family: the pure white sand and sunset is best during summer. A great family getaway location

This is a beautiful long, sandy beach which is great just to walk along. You can take walks in either direction, one way to Cathedral Cove. It is also a great place just to relax and watch the sunset.

Walked everyday for 3 weeks. Very nice relaxing walk next to the beach. Lovely views. Can walk from the beach to cathedral cove or other way up the cliffs and up the hill. Very quite during winter.

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....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.
