The eastern coast of the North Island is filled with lovely beaches and bays of every description. Sheltered from the western weather by mountain ranges, you will find most of the beaches protected from the wind, with lots of sun and golden sand. Ideal for swimming, sunbathing and all water sports. The best beaches are in the northern half of the island, from Northland to East Cape.
