The New Chums Beach is a pretty sick beach here in New Zealand, you can't go by car so you walk around 30 minutes to the beach along the coast. You can climb a little hill/mountain and have an overview to the beach. It is not so much tourism as Cathedral Cove.

Most beautiful beach we have ever seen.
One of the best beaches I have ever seen in my life and not overcrowded.
Best beach I have ever seen! Just a few people. But the walk to the beach is full with stinky algae.
Very nice walk along the beach and on the rocks. The New Chums Beach was really amazing!
