The Worlds Best Surf - Raglan


Raglan is a small beachside town on the North Island of New Zealand which is recognized worldwide as a magnificent surfing destination. In addition to the world-class surf, Raglan is known for its stunning scenery with beautiful beaches of black volcanic sands. The left hand break at Manu Bay attracts surfers from all over the world and has hosted several international surfing competitions. Raglan also has a very good surfing school.

"Raglan’s a surfing mecca for wave riders, with three world-class point breaks. Manu Bay is said to offer the longest left hand rides on the planet and featured in Bruce Brown’s 1964 classic surf film The Endless Summer. Further along the coastline sit the breaks of Whale Bay and Indicators. For the less experienced head to Ngaranui Beach." (Raglan.net.nz)
