All reviews car park water taxi cathedral cove minute walk beautiful beach new zealand nice walk well worth the effort walking shoes takes about minutes limited parking flip flops natural beauty low tide shuttle bus take your time stunning views
Good paths to walk and enjoy the lovely views. Good for younger children as I took my 8 and 11 year olds and they managed fine. Take water as the walk is a bit long and there are stairs at the end which are quite...More
Nice albeit undulating walk, beautiful beach and stone archway at the end of it.
Timed it right and went early morning and left as the buses carrying hundreds started arriving but had the beach to almost to ourselves for a good while.
Parking between October...More
This walk takes about 45 mins each way. Make sure you take water as it is very undulating and steep in some parts and there is no fresh water when you get there. If you are planning on making a day of it you will...More

It's worth it. The walk from the lookout to the beach is beautiful, but not easy if overweight and unfit. There are reasonably steep sections both up and down. The carpark at the lookout is only open during winter. All other times park in the...More

Plenty of local residents...More

We visited on the first day that the park and ride was in operation. We parked in the car park at Hahei, just on the right as you enter the town. Within a few minutes, the bus was there. $5 return per adult was well...More

Hi. From the Hahei carpark it's about 45 minute walk one way. Alternatively you can park closer to the start of the walk. Some locals charge $10 to park on their property. From there it's a 30 minute walk. Enjoy!
