New Chums is the perfect NZ beach if you catch it in summer, and on a sunny day. It has nice sand, clear water, and some waves.
There is limited shade from trees so it's a good idea to take a sun umbrella/shade.

New Chum's beach is reached by a short 40 minute walk from Whangapoua on New Zealand's Coromandel peninsula. There is no road access at all. best reached at low tide, you might have to cross a small stream to gain access at Whangapoua beach -...More
