New Zealand’s most loved beach – vote on the final three

Media Release: 7 March 2014
New Zealand’s most loved beach – vote on the final three
With close to half a million votes and more than 35,000 participants, New Zealand’s most loved beach is close to being selected.

From a list of more than 200 popular beaches, including favourites submitted by participants, New Zealand Facebook users have voted on their most loved beaches and have selected their top three:

• Matai Bay – Karikari Peninsula, Northland.

• Whangamata Beach – Coromandel Peninsula

• Ohope Beach – Eastern Bay of Plenty

AA General Manager Membership and Brand Dougal Swift says the initiative provided people with a chance to exhibit passion for their favourite spots throughout the country.

“People have posted some of their own beach photos on the AA Facebook page and sometimes have provided some very specific instructions to find what they say are the best spots.”

Some beaches seem to be loved because they’re extremely accessible and popular, others because they’re tiny and isolated and few people know about them beyond the locals.

“From some of the descriptions and memories people have posted, it’s clear there really is a lot to love about our beaches and I hope that people have got a few fresh ideas about where they should explore.”

People can now vote on the favourite beach out of the top three.

Eliminated from the top 10 were:

• Caroline Bay – Canterbury

• Kaiteriteri Beach – Tasman

• Castlepoint – Welling

• Back Beach – Taranaki

• Bruce Bay – West Coast

• St Clair Beach – Otago

• Tawharanui – Auckland

New Zealand’s most loved beach will be announced early next week.

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