And while many arrive here because of the surf, Raglan’s cruisy vibe has a powerful effect on all visitors. Just ask around, and you’ll soon discover how many people get “stuck” in Raglan for so long. Beware, Raglan might cast its spell on you too. Feel free to quit your day job!
With beautiful surroundings, new arrivals are greeted with the backdrop of Mt. Karioi. Challenge yourself with a full-day summit ascent – or simply enjoy one of Raglan’s shorter bushwalks. Visit the spectacular Bridal Veil Falls. Explore the crystal clear waters of our stunning harbour and its pancake rocks. And, of course, head over to Ngarunui Beach for a stroll along its black volcanic sand and have a go at riding a green wave!
The surfing in Raglan is great, but it’s not the ONLY thing we have to offer! Get out there and explore!
