Cool down after a coastal hike
Part of the spectacular wind- and ocean-eroded coastline of the Te Whanganui-A-Hei Marine Reserve, Cathedral Cove on New Zealand's Coromandel Peninsula is reached via an undulating coastal track taking around 40 minutes. To avoid the inevitable crowds, it's best to visit the massive stone arch early in the morning or late in the afternoon, and the natural shower of the arch's waterfall is a refreshing option after the walk. The stunning beach is also popular for swimming, and en route there's good snorkeling at Gemstone Bay and Stingray Bay. To arrive at the cove by sea, contact Cathedral Cove Water Taxi to make the short hop from the nearby resort town of Hahei.
