Which is New Zealand’s most loved beach?

Which is New Zealand’s most loved beach?


We’re blessed with hundreds of stunning beaches in New Zealand but which is the best? Over the next four weeks, the AA is asking Kiwis to decide just which beach is most loved.

AA was behind the 101 Must Do’s For Kiwis – a celebration of the best this country has to offer – which attracted more than 260,000 votes.

Now AA is asking Kiwis to champion their favourite beaches by voting for them – pitting beach against beach.

AA General Manager Membership and Brand Dougal Swift says Kiwis are passionate about beaches, with many holidaying at their favourite beach every year.

“We’ve all got wonderful beach memories and more often than not, especially during the summer, we’re thinking about being there if we’re stuck somewhere else,” Mr Swift says.

“We’d love to see more Kiwis holidaying at home and enjoying everything our wonderful country has to offer, so this campaign is designed to find our most loved beaches and maybe give people some new local favourites to explore.”

From today, people can vote for their favourite beaches in each region on the AA’s Facebook page.

“And if a favourite beach isn’t there, anyone can suggest a beach to include and upload a photo if they have one, and it will be added to the mix.”

Mr Swift says the first phase of voting will continue for three weeks after which just 20 beaches will remain.

Those final beaches will head into a knock out phase over a week with the least popular falling off the list every day.

On Monday 3 March, AA will announce New Zealand’s Most Loved Beach.

“We’ll be making iconic AA signs for each of the top 10 beaches and hope they will be erected by the district or city councils lucky enough to be responsible for them.”

Each voter will be entered into a draw to win one of 10 prizes of $500 accommodation from aatravel.co.nz which they can use to visit their favourite beach, or perhaps discover a new one.

To participate, go to the AA New Zealand page on Facebook.
