Making tracks across some idyllic secluded beaches of Pomare Bay. ? ? One thing I love about New Zealand is how spaced out it all is. Many people think of us as a tiny island, however we aren't actually all that tiny!? ? New Zealand is actually bigger than the UK, yet it has one-fourteenth of its human population – there's only around 5 million of us. ? ? It means there's tons of beach for everyone, and lots of space to stretch out if you like a quiet, sandy bay all to yourself.
