3. Cathedral Cove, New Zealand
Known in the Maori language as Te Whanganui-A-Hei, Cathedral Cove is among the most beautiful spots in the Coromandel Peninsula. The sparkling blue ocean, soft sand, and Te Hono Rock make this place one of the most beautiful beaches worth visiting. Being very popular with tourists, it receives more than 150,000 visitors each year.
The cove itself is unique and the wonderful beaches, cliffs and rocks surrounding it are very picturesque. The hiking is so exciting, and it’s a great combination of uphill and down, making it a great exercise without being too stressful!
