Hawke's Bay

Francesca, 8

Mahia is one of New Zealand's most beautiful beaches. You can get to see some of the best views on the mountain Mokotahi. You can see the blue, aqua sea for miles, and if you are lucky, you might spot a dolphin. There are two tracks up the mountain. One is quicker and steep, the other is lower and windier. I have been up both ways but I prefer the steep way up. I've never seen such a wonderful place and I hope I can go there again.
