Re­lax and em­brace tran­quil sur­rounds

Life & Style Weekend - - TRAVEL - BY Ben­jamin Earl

NEW Zealand is one of my favourite places to visit. Whether ab­seil­ing down a moun­tain or tak­ing a more re­laxed ap­proach by

vis­it­ing The Coromandel in sum­mer, the op­por­tu­ni­ties

in New Zealand are end­less. In or­der to re­ally ex­pe­ri­ence the true New Zealand, in my opin­ion,

there rent­ing is a no car bet­teror camper­van­way than

and tak­ing to the road to ex­plore. One of my favourite places on the North Is­land is vis­it­ing The Coromandel. An as­pect that still leaves me speech­less is how the pris­tine beaches meet beau­ti­ful na­tive forests; it is a sight like no other and a place where

you can re­ally en­joy re­lax­ing and tak­ing in the tranquilli­ty. Ar­guably one of the most pic­turesque spots in The

Coromandel, al­though I found so many, Cathe­dral Cove is any pho­tog­ra­pher’s dream. I loved vis­it­ing this stun­ning and se­cluded spot. We en­joyed tak­ing a pic­nic and spend­ing the day by the wa­ter – I feel it is the only way to re­ally

ex­pe­ri­ence the true beauty of this amaz­ing place. An­other great spot we en­joyed and I would highly

rec­om­mend vis­it­ing is Hot Wa­ter Beach. Now this is def­i­nitely a unique ex­pe­ri­ence. Just a one-hour drive and you can ex­pe­ri­ence the un­der­ground hot springs that fil­ter up through the sand be­tween the high and low tides. The great part about all of this is that there are di­rect

flights from the Sun­shine Coast into Auck­land sea­son­ally. I would rec­om­mend New Zealand for ev­ery­one; it’s great for

fam­i­lies and kids, groups of friends or even cou­ples. It re­ally does cater for ev­ery­one. If you are want­ing to try out New Zealand for your next trip, come in and see me at Flight Cen­tre Bud­erim or call me on 1300 356 083.
