Bay of Plenty/Coromandel
Kate, 12My favourite place in New Zealand is Mt Maunganui. The tropical temperatures ease as millions of people line up along the beach. Waves turn and crash upon the multiple different coloured boards of surfers. The sweet smell of crisp, deep blue ocean reaches its way throughout the city. Mountains of pure green, lay by the beaches. Boats weave to and from the port. The sweet full sound of chirping bird will leave you a peaceful sound to wake up to. When the sunset hits, many tourists line up to take photos. It's calm, it's peaceful, it's my home, it's Mt Maunganui.
