Wanderlusting – Beaches

Wanderlusting – Beaches

I really enjoyed doing the Wanderlusting post last week, so I thought I would keep going with it. The sun has been coming out a little more these past few weeks, and it’s a reminder of the warmer seasons being not too far away. So my theme for this week’s photos is all about beaches!

Starting with the beaches from my own little country of New Zealand. Since we’re an island, we have a lot of beaches. Here are some of my favourite ones I’ve been to.

Rarangi Beach, Blenheim

I’ve talked about this beach quite a few times on here. We used to go to it quite a bit growing up, so I have a lot of photos of this beach. This is my favourite one though. There’s a staircase area leading up and you get an amazing view of the beach.

Golden Bay, Nelson

We’ve only been here once that I can recall. It was very pretty and the sand was very golden.

Cape Palliser Beach, Wellington

The main appeal of this beach was to go see the lighthouse. But the whole coastal drive there was just surreal.

Oriental Beach, Wellington

This is the most popular beach in my hometown. Especially in summer, it gets packed. Lots of cute cafes, restaurants, shops, walkways, and all that. It’s definitely a beautiful area, it’s well-kept and things are always happening there. I frequented other, smaller beaches growing up. But when we lived in town, I did love coming down here and going for walks.

Makara Beach, Wellington

Rory was the one who first took me here a few years back. It’s a gorgeous little spot which has a walking track up the hill. It takes around an hour, and the views are worth it.

Little Oneroa Beach, Waiheke Island

Waiheke Island in general is beautiful. We went there for my sister’s wedding last October. The only beach Rory and I spent much time at was the Little Oneroa beach. It was scenic and really nice.

Now we head out to other ones from around the world.

La Playa Roja (Red Beach), Peru

We didn’t spend too much time at this beach. It was when we were in Paracas and part of a tour. It was incredible to see a beach with such red sand!

Taveuni Resort Beach, Fiji

Fiji is known to have some amazing beaches. For our honeymoon, we were at a resort in Taveuni. I spent more time at the infinity pool, but the beach was also just 2 minutes away so we had to spend some time there. White sands, clear water, and lots of fish to stalk and watch as you snorkel.

Bondi Beach, Australia

So I talked about this last week in my Wanderlusting post, but since this post is about beaches, I had to bring it back. Just look at it! It’s stunning!!

All these beach photos are definitely getting me excited for summer! What beaches have you been to?
