In Hahei, Cathedral Cove is one of the most visited spots – and for good reason! Cathedral Cove is a stunning coastal gem; a photographer’s dream. With dramatic waterfalls and colourful hues of sandstone archways, there will be more than one option to post on the gram!

The beaches at Hahei are about as picturesque as they come, the perfect spot to start your day.

Hot tip: A short one-kilometre walk along the beach provides a more peaceful and intimate stroll than the bustling Cathedral Cove walkway, so you can enjoy your sunrise in peace and quiet. Also, brew a cup of coffee at your Hahei bach and take it with you along the beach for a blissful way to greet the day!


3. Have a kayaking adventure
