Beaches in new Zealand

over 6 years ago about New Zealand

I'm looking for a beach escape in the middle of NZ holiday. A rest and recover break for two adults and a nine year old girl before we take off again. Some beaches I've found in my research are:
Waihi beach. (bay of plenty).
Paihia (bay of islands)

Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi Matt,

    When you say 'in the middle of NZ holiday', do you mean December/Jan?

    Bay of Islands definitely, many terrific beaches. I've got a soft spot for the back beach at Russell and bizarrely have a burial plot bought for me by a relative there...I digress. Its divine up there, you wont be dissapointed. over 6 years ago

    I spent a night at Waihi beach in our campervan in the middle of winter. We stopped there because it was halfway to Coromandel so I didn't research it or have any expectations. It turned out to be one of the most memorable and stunning places on our trip. almost 6 years ago

    Onetangi beach on Waiheke Island is nice, 40 minute ferry ride from Auckland city and then bus to onetangi. You could stay at the sands apartments on the beach. almost 6 years ago

    The Coromandel peninsula has some awesome beaches. Matarangi and Whangapoa are stunning. Also Tirua and Whitianga. Look at renting a holiday house through Bookabach website. almost 6 years ago
