New Chums Beach, Whangapoua

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.
