Cathedral Cove is located at Hahei, just 10minutes drive from the famous Hot Water Beach. Foot access to Cathedral Cove starts at the top of Grange Road. There is two vehicle parking options: The first is at the Visitor Car Park on Pa Road (turn right just after entering Hahei) the 2nd is up Grange Road (turn left past shops and go all the way to end of Grange Road). During the summer months a shuttle service runs from the visitor car park on Pa Road to the start of the Cathedral Cove track. Alternatively you can walk from the car park around the beach to the start of the track which will take an extra 20mins. It is here that you can also access Gemstone Bay and Mares Leg. Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve, Te WhanganuiA-Hei, covers 9 square kilometres and is New Zealand’s sixth marine reserve. It is administered by the Department of Conservation.
