Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Whilst we were driving through Coromandel Peninsula on our most recent visit we stopped off near Whitianga and we have been to nearby Cathderal Cove and Hahei in the past. The bay was named by Captain James Cook during his exploratory expeditions. The Māori named it Te-Whanganui-o-Hei, the great bay of Hei. It is an incredibly scenic area and worth visiting whilst in the Coromandel Peninsula.

Lots of beaches to pull over and enjoy. Slow roads that require concentration. Beautiful views all over. Stop and enjoy

Picturesque location, its a must see whilst travelling the peninsula. We found Coromandel peninsula is the best of the North Island.

The bay is lined with beautiful, clean and soft sand beaches. The ocean is clean and warm (we visited in March), but be careful of the strong current and rips.

think long beaches, good surf, cliffs with extra long views and the famous Cathedral Cove to enjoy. A bit windy but Captain Cook loved it.

We have been to Mercury Bay before, but by land. Now son-in-law has got a boat. A great day or two cruising around this beautiful bay, with lovely beaches for swimming and barbecues. Scenic. And good fishing.
