It may be just 100 kilometers north of New Zealand’s biggest city, Auckland, but the charming Northland town of Mangawhai could be a whole world away.
Mangawhai, New Zealand
It’s a varied beach town: Mangawhai’s Pacific beaches offer the thrill of surfing while its peaceful harbor – flanked by sand dunes that are home to rare trees and birds – offers safe swimming and kayaking, and events like the Mangawhai Walking Weekend held each autumn encourage residents and visitors alike to discover the town’s natural beauty. A longtime haven for artists too, Mangawhai has a thriving arts scene and is home to many galleries and studios.
