Cathedral Cove was one of three places that continually came up in conversation about Coromandel so it was with malice aforethought that I made for the extensive carpark on the cliff where one alights before commencing the half hour walk to the beach.
It was on a sparkling Sunday when we glanced across the flashing ocean tips to the islands beyond.
The well formed track wound back and forth around the headlands, at times affording rural views, at other times water glimpses.
At one stage we came to a recently lopped tree (pic 5) which you could almost believe had been removed to (a) improve the view and (b) make a poser point for tourists.

Directions: Just to the north of Hahei Beach.
