This Way to Narnia and Cair Paraval - Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand

I was watching the most recent Narnia movie this weekend (Prince Capsian) as the Pevensie children stepped off a train platform in London and appeared to come out of a cave in Narnia at Cair Paraval. Much to my surprise, I recognized where the scene was filmed which was at the opening between these two coves (Mares Leg Cove in the foreground and Cathedral Cove through the opening) on New Zealand’s beautiful Coromandel Peninsula.

They apparently did not worry about the rope that tells you that this cave is unsafe and that you should not enter it. Which probably means they also did not rip out the crotch of one of their only two pairs of pants ducking under the rope.
