With the energy and enthusiasm still at high, we traveled to Cathedral Cove, which is quite nearby from the fall. Located in the Coromandel Peninsula, the Cathedral Cove is the result of the sculpture on the rock over the years by the different forms of nature, creating an archway.
This secluded place, once upon a time, has gained increasing tourist attraction. We were ready for a picnic over there. Saving the best one at the end, what an amazing way to end the holiday!
At the bays, we saw some boulders and sandy beaches, as well as the sea cave. Walking back to the main track, we climbed up to reach the summit of the hill and looked around to catch the breathtaking view of islands. I didn’t want to leave the place, but there were more in store for us, so we walked further to reach the pine forest through scrubland featuring greenish native shrubs. By then, it was climbing down to the Cathedral Cove.
I loved walking through the arch though warning signals were given for the rock falling due to erosion. Popularly known as Te Whanganui-A-Hei Marine Reserve, this place stretches around nine square kilometers. Rich in marine reserve, New Zealand has this sixth in the list.
Nature and its wonders had started making good impact on me since the visit to some scenic spots. My husband wanted to explore the rich marine reserve of the place and I felt he was right for it might be once in lifetime opportunity. Nevertheless, we were getting late, so we had to drop the plan.
