World's best beaches: Kai Iwi
Kai Iwi Beach. Rugged and wild at heart, just like the town it finds itself in.
I lived in Whanganui for three years - some of the best, and some of the worst of my life.
Taking a walk on this beach seemed to put worldy issues in their place, to be replaced with thoughts of the bigger picture.
I miss you Mowhanau.
