Whangamata, choice, bro

Last week I was in Kiwiland, doing a spot of mountain-climbing and then recovering at the beach.

Which beach? Whangamata, of course.

Mention Whangamata to any Kiwi and most of them have spent a summer holiday there or know someone with a bach (that’s kiwi for beach shack) there. It’s a family summer holiday rite of passage kind of place.

Of course it helps that it is beautiful, ringed by hinterland and with some Thai-style offshore islands and a sumptuous river, perfect for kayaking. Plus it does good (if not exactly cheap) coffee and food.
