We, fortunately, got to park at the main entrance and then walked leisurely for around 30-40 mins to reach the beach. Typical to NZ walks, this one also goes up and down but offers beautiful views while you walk. The view from the arch is...More

Don’t let the distance or terrain scare you off. If you don’t stop and take pictures along the way like what we did on the way back, it will just take you 30 mins one way. But the terrain can be challenging and what goes...More

It’s a must for all to enjoy.. 40 min to arrive but the walk there and back is gorgeous. It’s a natural gem and lucky to have experienced the moment. New Zealand at its best!!!

I walked to Cathedral Cove from the carpark at the top of the hill. It stated a 45 minute moderate walk. I walk fast so it was 30 minutes there and 30 minutes back. Well worth it! The scenery along the way is beautiful with...More

Cathedral Cove is beautiful. There's a car park with stunning views of the Pacific. The walk to the cove takes about 45 minutes. The path is paved pretty much the entire way. It's described as a "leisure walk" in most things I've read, but I...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!

We rented a car and drove to all our destinations. We are used to going it on our own. But there are shuttles that will take you. Just ask your concierge desk.

We walked from the village as we were staying there. Overall it was probably 35/40 minutes more.
