Here is our list of beaches you should definitely explore in the New Zealand summer.

    Hot Water Beach

    Along the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula, lies the Hot Water Beach. This is because of the underground hot water springs that come up in the sands of the beach in between low and high tidal waves. It is a geothermal attraction, with large amounts of local and tourist visitors.

    Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve

    Again along the Coromandel Coast, the Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve is known for its brilliant natural sand and rock structures. It takes a good hike to get there, but the atmosphere and picturesque view are worth it. You can also swim and have a picnic to bask in the New Zealand sun, under the protection of the shady pohutukawa trees.

    Ninety Mile Beach

    The Ninety Nine Mile Beach is only, in fact, around 88 miles long, but that does not stop the crowds of tourists flocking here. Officially a highway, you can partake in off-road driving or scale up the massive sand dunes north of the beach. Or you can simply take in the awe-inspiring sunsets with our New Zealand beach packages.

    Bay of Islands

    With more than 140 chain islands to explore, the Bay of Islands is an ideal New Zealand summer spot.

The secluded white sand Anchor Bay in the Tawharanui National Park, serene waters of the Cheltenham Beach, breathtaking caves at the Bethells Beach, golden sand of the Mission Bay, and the half-moon shaped Point Chevalier Beach are just some of the countless spots for beach enthusiasts. Many of them are great surfing beaches, while the Cheltenham Beach is known for kayaking. Your customized package trip to Auckland should include the unique black sand beaches present here.
