Where is the best beach in the world? We asked our readers to add their favourites to our interactive map (below).

Papamoa Beach has 16km of white sand stretching from Mount Maunganui to the Kaituna River.

It is a beautiful beach and great for surfing or paddle boarding.

You can enjoy a beautiful sunset or sunrise and then scale Mount Maunganui or Moturiki Island to get a great view of the area.
