Explore Hahei

Hahei is a most spectacular and popular pink sandy beach – close to world famous Cathedral Cove… Experience the many moods and stunning scenery of Hahei and Mercury Bay. Go scuba diving and explore the marine wildlife in the Hahei Marine Reserve or explore the wonderful coastline on a scenic boat trip or a guided sea kayak tour, dig your own spa pool at Hot Water Beach or enjoy a round of golf. Hahei also offers a number of tantalising restaurants and cafes to satisfy your taste buds.

Stunning Cathedral Cove

There are many fabulous beaches, walking tracks and great scenery to take in. Further south is situated Coromandel s first marine reserve, officially designated in early 1993. It is easily accessed from Hahei Beach and Cathedral Cove. It incorporates the offshore area from Cooks Bluff and Motukorure Island to Hahei and Mahurangi Island.

Hot Water Beach

A truly unique experience! Hot water flows from the interior of the earth to surface at Hot Water Beach. Two hours either side of low tide visitors flock to the usually deserted beach to find hot water bubbling through the golden sand, digging their own spa pool in the sand to lie back in and relax while the steam from their hot pool envelops them.
