What a revelation Raglan is. We headed to the bustling seaside town on Auckland anniversary weekend, a long weekend in NZ, just to check it out. Not really sure what to expect, we found a buzzing town with lots of people visiting. There is a great strip of shops, cafes and restaurants which heads down to the water of the bay where hundreds of people were enjoying the stunning day.

A definite highlight was heading over to Ngarunui Beach where we enjoyed lunch and a swim. Also offered on the beach are surfing lessons, and there were quite a few tourists taking this up. The beach is patrolled making it a great spot to enjoy the surf.

While in the region, I would highly recommend a trip to the Bridal Veil Falls, just 15 minutes out of town.
