Gorgeous Beaches

Raglan is well known for its amazing beaches that boast some amazing surf opportunities, not being a surfer myself I can't comment too much on that. However the beaches are pretty spectacular and the general vibe of the town is awesome!

We only spent about an hour wandering around and having some lunch here but we definately want to go back for a couple of nights and explore the area some more.

Approx 40 mins drive from Hamilton & around 2 hours from Auckland.

Bridal Veil Falls

If your scared of heights you may not be too appreciative of the first lookout for the bridal veil falls because you are literally standing right out beside the top of the waterfall! Luckily for us though there is another viewing platform where you can get an amazing view just a few metres in the opposite direction. Unfortunately we didn’t walk down to the bottom as we had jandals on and weren’t sure of how rough the track was. All in all an amazing waterfall!
