Papamoa Beach


Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Kate, 9

My favourite time of the year is being at Papamoa Beach because of the soft sand squishing between your feet and the waves are crashing against the sand. The waves are way too big to jump. But at the end of the day is really fun because the surf was as sparkly as the glitter. It is as clear as glass. It is as fun as a water slide. It is as a busy a little town. But my favourite part is boogie boarding where you are on top of the wave and boom you go straight down.
