17 Feb Raglan Beach, New Zealand

Raglan Beach in New Zealand

This beautiful beach is in Raglan, a place I visited on my two-week visit to the North Island of New Zealand. Raglan is a laid-back town on the West Coast of the North Island and was about a 45 minute drive from where I was staying in Hamilton. While staying in Hamilton I wanted to venture out and see what this entire Island had to offer. This black sand beach I believe is called Ngaranui and has world-class waves for people who enjoy surfing and bodyboarding. I just went to chill in the sunshine and have a swim- it was March and was starting to get a bit chillier. The streets of the town are lined with palm trees and you can sit and have a coffee or look around the shops and art galleries. If this sounds appealing to you, book an affordable flight from Buenos Aires, Tokyo, or San Francisco and head to Raglan Beach for a wonderful and relaxing holiday season.

Hi I'm Victoria, a British girl from Manchester. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and find a way to make money at the same time. I now call London home, although I still travel whenever I can. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and see the world.
