Beaches in Owaka
The Cathedrals
The Cathedrals, this is what they call a couple of caves made by the sea and which are connected by a small passageway. If you want to visit, consult what time the tides are low (only be visited at low tide). Located very close to the Mclean waterfalls, to reach these caves you have to walk about 10 minutes through the forest and 5 minutes along the beach. Admission costs five dollars,

Tunnel Beach
After a 20 minute walk, you will reach one of the most amazing sites on the Otago Peninsula ... The tiny beach is reached through a tunnel (hence comes the name), but the arc around you is one of the most impressive I've seen (and I write this after having traveled the Great Ocean Road).
Beaches in Queenstown
Queenstown Main Beach
The main beach of Queenstown is very close to the town centre. On hot summer afternoons, it's crowded with locals and tourists. Some of the more fearless plunge into Lake Wakatipu to cool off (warning - the water is very cold!). During calmer times of the day, the surface of the lake is home to dozens of sailboats. I've even seen the New Zealand national sailing team training here!
