Laid-back surf town
Raglan is an iconic laid-back Kiwi surf town on the west coast of the North Island, a 30-minute drive west of Hamilton and a two-hour drive south of Auckland.
Along with plenty of waves to keep the surfies happy, there’s a solid arts scene highlighted by the Old School Arts Centre.
If you’re up for a surf lesson, contact the Raglan Surf School.
Raglan is lively, with good theatre, film and concerts, along with some excellent shopping, eateries and bars. A great spot to chill out for a day or two.
