Beaches, Lakes & Coastlines
West Coast beaches, lakes & coastlines
Stretching North to South some 600km - the same distance from Auckland to Wellington - the West Coast of the Southern Alps, New Zealand is a long, thin piece of paradise no wider than 70km at any one point.
The wild Tasman Sea pounds its coastline on one side while the Southern Alps provide a stunning mountain backdrop on the other. The vast coastline of the West Coast offers a wide range of opportunities for walks, activities, wildlife viewing and good old relaxation.
