Loved this area of NZ. Breathtaking views! Be sure to hike to Cathedral Cove and bring shovel and check tide times to do Hot Beach. Both a must do.

“Long walk but worth the end result”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Great for the photo opportunties but check the tide times - you need to be there 2 hours either side of low tide. Access is via a 45 minute walk along an untreated trodden path which is uneven, in my opinion totally unsuitable for push chairs and buggies and babies and has a lot of wooden steps both up and down hill. Not for the feint hearted but well worth the end result so take a sunhat as it can get rather warm on route and some water - there are no amenities once you leave the car park (which gets VERY full). It is totally free though which is a bonus.

“items for sale are more expensive here than at a store in whitianga”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

it was raining so much during the last few days of dec2011 that we ended up here. we didn't do a tour, just samples their products and bought their macadamia spread and brownies. the spread is $1 more than what we later found at a whitianga store. same for their oil. this was surprising and disappointing as we'd expected it to be cheaper at the source.
