I love a nice long stroll on the beach. The sound of the waves, the smell of the sea and the sand in between my....

Toes

The clue is in the title, that's why you haven't heard of it.

Do you think its something you could well enjoy

The South Island is beautiful. I have seen lots of it. Any where in particular you would recommend?

I’m biased but it’s my favourite place in the world.

Amazing walking trails in the west if you’re fit and like a challenge or nature reserves in south, party town and tourists (in the ‘day’) in Queenstown and decent skiing and boarding if it’s your thing. What you looking for that you didn’t find before?

Hamner Springs is great for chilling out in the hotpools & in any kind of weather.

Further north, the beaches up at Kaiteritiri are amazing.

I'm less familiar with the far south but have had fantastic times in Wanaka & Tekapo.

I feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful and peaceful place.

I like exploring out of the way places and seeing things that are not so well known, such as Clay Cliffs near Omarama and Elephant Rocks near Duntroon.

If you enjoy peaceful nights under the stars, you might want to experience the dark sky in the Mackenzie Country and Lake Tekapo.

There is something similar at Omarama. I do really want to go to Tekapo as the alternative Alps to Ocean starting point.

A day at the Cable Bay winery on Waiheke Island is a wonderful day out. Lovely surroundings, restaurant and, of course, wines.

As a tourist, but lucky enough to have visited 5 times, relatives met Auckland, I will throw my favourites into the mix.

Bethels Beach

Bay of Islands - view from top of hill at Russell is one of most beautiful views

Walk along hill top at Long Bay and back by the shore

South Island - anywhere.

Greetings from the Scots. Xx

Lived in Auckland for 2 years & took a motorbike & car around the South Island.

There's a number of good places close to Auckland. Piha is worth a trip, the ocean road along the Coromandel is an amazing drive/ride.

Seeing Bethell's Beach and Piha mentioned, I want to draw attention to a beach I favour over these two: Karekare.

And if you are into hiking, I recommend a walk between Whatipu (at the entrance of Manukau Harbour) and Karekare along the coast (watch the tides!) and retour via the ridge track. Great scenery!

Just googled it and wow! The photos on the website look gorgeous.

Tunnel Beach is reasonably local to me and is a definite go-see here.

I've just booked up to go to Mou Waho in Wanaka. It looks amazing an island in Lake Wanaka that has it's own lake.

Te Anau and the glow worm caves. I went there on the boat late one moonlit night. The moonlight was illuminating the snowy hills. It was quite perfect.

I did the boat trip to the glow worm caves in Te Anau when I was backpacking then ended up in The Moose bar later and our tour guide for the glow worms sang Taking it Easy by The Eagles. He had an amazing voice. Great memories

No covid restrictions here, only encouragement to use government tracing app. I could arrange meets if I wanted to.
