Birthday Vacation Part 2 - Cathedral Cove

The Coromandel is a popular holiday spot in NZ with its sandy beaches, geothermal hot pools and stunning scenery.  Cathedral Cove is probably the most visited place in the Coromandel and I can't believe it took me so long to visit!

There is a small car park at the top of the hill and its about a 20 minute walk to get to the cove.  We were treated to beautiful sunshine with a cool wind and amazing views.

As we travelled along the path, we had the sea on one side, and pastures with sheep on the other.

The we headed down along a wooded trail

And after a while and down some stairs, we popped out on the beach.

And there we were at Cathedral Cove


If this looks familiar to you, you may have seen it in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
What's your favourite beauty spot? Is there somewhere that took you a long time to visit but you're so glad you did?

  1. Wow, that is such a beautiful area! There are so many beautiful parts of NZ. You are lucky to live in such a beautiful country! My favorite beauty spots locally are the lakes and rivers in Minneapolis - I think the juxtaposition of a bustling city next to beautiful lakes and rivers makes Minneapolis really special. Outside of Minnesota, other spots that I think are beautiful are the mountains, especially Colorado!
