The jewel of a seaside town on the leeward shore of the Mercury Bay, Hahei harbours one of Aotearoa/New Zealand's natural treasures. This small and charming village is a favourite with Kiwi holiday-makers, with a long stunning white sand beach and clear calm waters. Hahei is also the kick-off point for walks and tours to the world-renown Cathedral Cove.
Situated in Te Whanganui-a-Hei Marine Reserve, the abundance of wildlife, the protected status of the land and sea and the sheltered aspect of the volcanic coast make this a year-round playground.
