Verse of The Day
“I a koutou mahi katoa kaua te amuamu, te tautohetohe; Kia kore ai koutou e whaikupuria, kia tapatahi ai, he tamariki kohakore na te Atua, i waenganui o te whakatupuranga tutu, parori ke, kei roto nei koutou i a ratou e tiaho ana hei rama i te ao; Kia mau pu ki te kupu o te ora; kia hari ai ahau a te ra o te Karaiti, kihai ahau i oma noa, kihai i mahi noa.” (Philippians 2:14-16)

Anna Tuson rates Northland beaches against the Welsh coast.

The decision to place Tutukaka and the Welsh Pembrokeshire coast second-equal after Avalon, Newfoundland, in a ranking of the world's finest coasts is a cop-out.

While I respect National Geographic Traveler, the magazine that produced the rankings, my response was: if you can't decide between the two, let me be the judge.

I'm a self-proclaimed specialist in beaches, my sole qualification being that I grew up in the Coromandel. I should admit that beaches from elsewhere inevitably come up as, "really nice, but not as nice as back home", partly because it's true, partly because of patriotism and partly just to annoy my non-Kiwi friends. But for the purposes of this article I will repress my natural bias.

I recently spent five days exploring Tutukaka, and I've also made several recent visits to different parts of Pembrokeshire as I've been living nearby in Cardiff.
