Visit Cathedral Cove, seen in the Narnia films, in the Coromandel

Located on the edge of the great Mercury Bay, close to the village of Hahei, famous Cathedral Cove is one of the “must visit” places in The Coromandel. There are several scenic tracks on land adjacent to the reserve, including the 1.5hr return walk, which give walking access to Gemstone Bay, Mare’s Leg and Cathedral Coves. But the very best way to experience the magic of this place and to discover the secrets of the volcanic coastline from which it is formed, is to approach on the water, by boat or by kayak.

Why might I recognise Cathedral Cove?

You might know Cathedral Cove better as Cair Paravel; the home of the Kings and Queens of Narnia. It was the filming location in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. When you arrive at Cathedral Cove, it doesn’t take you long to figure out why they chose this beach to represent such a majestic location of the famed C.S Lewis book.
