Another beach to relax on and forget the big city. And why not?

Beaches in New Plymouth
Fritzroy Beach
One of the most active beaches for surfing enthusiasts. Located in the north of New Plymouth, right next to the golf club, the waves in the area are well-known for being strong and long lasting. On busy days, surfers flock here in their hundreds just like the seagulls to enjoy the spectacle. It's essential to wear a neoprene wetsuit so that you can enjoy the cold water (cold even in summer). March is considered summer, and most surfers still wear a winter wetsuit. Like many beaches, you can camp in a tent, but caravans are prohibited, but there are many who spend the night and enjoy a memorable evening and the sunrise overlooking the city of New Plymouth.
Cities in New Plymouth
New Plymouth
The city saw the landing of thousands of Scots after the British invasion of New Zealand. For this reason, most of its inhabitants have family ties of varying degrees, and it is not uncommon to see similar faces all the time. A curious detail is the conservation of plants marking the city skyline. It's not something that has to be done anymore but it's so ingrained into the lives of the people here that no-one has ever thought to remove it. One of the best known programs driven by their municipality is the use of electric bicycles as well as the magnificent pedestrian and bicycle path that follow the coast north and south of the city.
