Hahei Beach is a coastal playground. A favourite holiday spot among locals, you're bound to fall in love with its sheltered golden sand beach.
Hahei, located on the Coromandel Peninsula, is an attractive beach fringed with pohutukawa trees and drifts of pink shells at the northern end. The offshore islands provide something of a breakwater, making this sheltered beach ideal for swimming, boating and fishing.
The coastline to the north and the offshore islands form the boundaries of a marine reserve, making this a popular destination for diving, snorkelling and kayaking. Reefs, caves, archways and soft sediments provide the ideal habitat for a variety of plants, fish, molluscs and crustaceans.
Hahei is a short drive from the beginning of the walkway that leads to famouss Cathedral Cove, home to a beautiful limestone rock arch that separates two white sand beaches.
At the southern end of Hahei beach, the Te Pare historic reserve is the site of an ancient Maori pa (fortified village).
Hahei township has delightful accommodation, shops and eateries. Make sure you book well in advance over the summer period (December - February).
