Cathedral Cove's Images

Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand
Description: Ignimbrite rock pillars and arches on a secluded beach which covers with sea water at hightide. Slightly chossy in some areas and limited on problems, but for a day at the beach, it couldn't be better. Handfull of highball topouts possible. Mostly just stunning in beauty!   History: Ignimbrite sea cliffs pounded by sea waves and scooped out by wind, eventually formed over thousands of years towers, arches and alcoves. The Maori once settled on top of the cliffs a Pa for viewing approaching tribal warriors. The Cathedral, is the central spire, accessed during lowtide only via the Cathedral Arch.
Camping: ??? All along the Coromandel Peninsula off the side of the roads, or Holiday Parks.
