Don't just lay on the beach the whole day, bring your swim wear , some lunch and visit the many beautiful bays of the far north. ie Taupo Bay, Tauranga Bay , Doubtless Bay, Papia Bay etc..... Visit the historical sites at Kerikeri, Waitangi and Russell.
That right! Lie on the beach, swim , kayak , wind surf, just walking , read a book , get a tan, play frisbee....the list is endless.
If you have a boat, this is a great place to spent the summer, if you don't you can always tag along we a friendly camper or charter one. Great fishing!.
The photo showed the 12.5 pounds snapper that this happy camper caught ,which is as big as his daughter. He was thrilled and was showing it around.
