Cathedral Cove

In November 2013 we went to see John’s son, Michael, and his girlfriend, Leah, in New Zealand.

Coromandel, New Zealand

The two of them have been working with WWOOF on the north island since September 2013.


While we were there, we visited Cathedral Cove.

Cathedral Cove is located on The Coromandel Peninsula and is arguably one of the most picturesque spots on The Peninsula.

You can tour the area by boat or kayak, but we chose to do the hike down.

It isn’t a difficult walk but you’ll want to wear shoes with some traction.

The walking track offers views of Gemstone Bay and Stingray Bay.

Around every corner is another breathtaking spot:
