Raglan

The surfer dream and the land of the hippies

4.5
out of 5

Raglan, on the west coast of the North Island, is a surfer’s paradise. From the iconic and world-famous Manu Bay, with its perfect left-hand break, to the picturesque harbour and sheltered bay, Raglan is a mecca for those who love the ocean. For the less-experienced, there are plenty of surf schools, where the friendly locals are happy to teach you the basics. But there’s more to Raglan than the waves. Its rugged black sand beaches are backed by lush native bush, and the town is full of independent cafés, restaurants and galleries. Take the time to explore the area’s many hidden gems, whether it’s a secret waterfall, a mountain bike trail or a stunning coastal walk.
