Cathedral Cove Walk, Hahei

Spend a day surrounded by breathtaking beaches, a crystal-clear sea, lush vegetation, and impressive rock formations at Cathedral Cove Walk. The cove's most prominent feature is the towering natural archway that connects two scenic bays. Its sandy beaches are perfect for relaxing by the sea, while the abundance of marine life makes the cove a great snorkeling destination. No roads lead to the cove, so you can access it either by a hiking trail or from the sea. Even though the hike to the cove is not too long or difficult, make sure to wear appropriate footwear and bring sufficient supplies of food and water--the beaches are in a protected area and don't have any facilities. Make Cathedral Cove Walk a part of your Hahei vacation plans using our Hahei tour itinerary planner.
