There are so many incredible beaches in this country every turn presents a new private cove and perfect settings for evenings on the beach. this one is called Giesepies beach and is on the west coast. Was a great place to rest after a hard day visiting the Fox and Franz Josef glaciers. Its the trips out of Wanaka that have let me fall in love with this country. Every time i visit another place there is so much beauty and peacefullness.
