My favourite place in New Zeland



Kaitlyn , 13

The salty wind brushes across your face as you're relaxing in the heated water. Barely a sound around you, even in mid day, only the odd car or boat tooting past. The afternoon is just the right time to go for dip or a dive, not to hot and not too cold.There are so many different things to do; a walk to the blow holes or swimming in the channel, or even getting a nice brown tan! But my most favourite part about Karitane is that the air is always silent. It may be small but it's definitely my favourite place in New Zealand.
