Cathedral Caves in The Catlins are majestic sea caves, which are open to the public at low tide and set in towering cliffs.

The caves are 30 metres high with 200 metres of passageways and amazing acoustics.

These are one of The World's largest sea cave complexes. They are located along the northern end of Waipati Beach, south of Papatowai.

Check for the latest conditions. Due to the nature of these caves, please check their website for tide times.

The Caves are closed between May and October due to the winter weather. There is a small fee for using the car park, in order to access the Cathedral Caves ($10 per adult and $2 per child).
