Raglan by the sea
Raglan seaside resort is a modest beach location 3/4 hour drive west of Hamilton. It has a popular surfing ocean beach and safe harbour swimming for those who prefer this.
The titanium-rich sand is black and can be picked up with a magnet if one wants to try, proving that it is basically iron sand.
Shellfish are also plentiful here as the local Maori population will attest, and sometimes swordfish can be caught in the waters off shore.
