New Plymouth's Back Beach has dipped out of AA New Zealand's search for the country's most loved coastal spot.
After 500,000 votes the popular New Plymouth beach made the top 10 from a list of 200.
The top three beaches were Matai Bay in Northland, Whangamata Beach in the Coromandel Peninsula and Ohope Beach in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.
Voting for the number one beach is now open on AA New Zealand's Facebook page.
