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.

    Hahei is amazing. Very chill and quiet in the the winter. A lil cray with crowds in the summer. Be aware the walk to Cathedral Cove is still closed. Boat rides $80pp. Supposed to be fixed by summer.

    My wife and I stayed at the Hahei Beach Resort. The beach is fantstic and great for walking, sunbathing, swimming, and much more.
    I've been here many times over past 50 years it it hasn't changed much at all.

    A great beach with a small walk to get to. There are things for everyone to do here the explorers and the curious can adventure into the many caves and passageways. The brave can jump off the cliff and into the ocean, and the ones who are tired can just relax.in this pristine location. This beach is a must do.

    A very enjoyable short walk for magnificent views of Hahei Beach and surroundings. We even saw a white-faced heron!

    Absolutely incredible. The water is so clear. When we went in December 2023, the track was still closed due to storm damage. We took the water taxi over from Hahei Beach. This was a fun, quick ride over. We caught a gorgeous day and the boat even slowed down to look down into the marine preserve along the ride over. Beautiful, soft sands. Stunning blue waters. Would love to come back some day and do the track over. If you are including the Coromandel Peninsula in your trip make some time for this!

    Shaun is a great guy with an incredibly beautiful gallery, cottages and kayak rentals. He was the most generous and helpful person we met in our whole trip to NZ! If he doesn’t have it, he knows where to find it. His sit on top kayaks got us to Cathedral Cove and we got his expert local advice on where to snorkel, see the rays and even weather/water conditions. They also have The Walnut and Fig on the property for fresh paua (seafood fritters), coffee and delicious sandwiches. Visit, stay bring home some art and really connect with Hahei in ways only a local can!

    This is a brilliant trip . Quick and informative briefing and in no time at all we were on the seas (I had never been in a kayak before ) We were divided into very small groups and allocated a private instructor. We had the brilliant JAMES who couldn’t have taken more trouble to give us the best afternoon kyaking . He navigated us expertly through the choppy waters and told us very interesting facts and ancient stories about the area and the programme for the sea restoration . THANK YOU

    What a fantastic boat trip we had with our overseas visitors. This is an excellent tour and would highly recommend it. Our skipper was very friendly and informative on local knowledge and made us feel very comfortable with his boat skills in and out of caves! I would definitely do this again with other visitors. This is a great way to see the local surrounds from the water in an hour!

    Great dive on the marine reserve, led by Claire, who was an excellent guide. Saw some rays and a bunch of other fish. Recommend!

    Great address where you can hire an as good as new excellent quality e-bike. Back home in The Netherlands we are used to riding an e-bike and are spoiled by lots of special cycling paths, so very different from cycling conditions in New Zealand. However, Lisa (owner) did a great job at instructing us on how to use the bikes, cycling safely through traffic up and down the steep roads, and where to go for places of interest in the area. We had a great time! Once again Lisa, thanks very much!

    The gentleman who owns this place is very friendly and knowledgeable. He is passionate about his farm and let’s you explore at no cost. The treats and souvenirs are also delicious.
