New Chums Beach, Whangapoua

4.4
#5 of 19 in Beaches in Waikato Region
Still undeveloped, New Chums Beach enchants intrepid travelers with its stretch of white sand fringed by native palms and pohutukawa trees. After crossing a shallow estuary at the trailhead, you'll need to take an uneven coastal path to get to the beach--the terrain and the remoteness of the spot helps it remain so unspoiled and uncrowded.

  • Beautiful beach. Muddy, slippery trail, best to stick to rocks until the end of them. Steep trail to look out is well worth it. Could spend all day here. A basic hike in hike out paid, well looked after camp site would offer an incredible experience if ever offered here.
  • What a gorgeous place well away from the rest of the world.. thought I had died & gone to heaven.
  • Not too good or bad. : !
