After a weekend in the city, we were happy to finally make it to a BEACH!

Campbell’s Bay Beach

We stayed the night in Campbell’s Bay with friends we’ve met here, Yvonne and David at their beautiful home near the beach. We had a lovely dinner where they shared some great ‘tramping’ tips (New Zealand’s word for hiking).

A lovely walk on the beach at sunrise had spectacular views of volcanic islands in the distance with unique sand and rock formations all along the coast. They even have this beautiful man-made walkway along the beach that looks like it was naturally made the wound along the shore. I look forward to exploring more of New Zealand’s beautiful beaches!
