Northlands - Langs Beach
Langs Beach on the Northland's east coast was my first stop on the way to Paihia. The tan coarse sand was typical for almost all the Northland's beaches.

Cable Bay Beach - my favorite beach by far on Doubtless Bay. Wonderful tan and gold coarse sand accented with lots of interesting black lava formations, beautiful clouds, sunsets and sunrises, all to myself! Wow!!!

A beautiful expansive beach in the little town of Ahipara nestled along a bay on the Northlands west coast. In the foreground a Christmas Tree is beginning to bloom.
