The Māori name Te Whanganui-A-Hei (the Great Bay of Hei) refers to Hei, a tohunga from the Te Arawa waka. According to tradition, Hei chose the area around Mercury Bay as home for his tribe, proclaiming ownership by calling Motueka Island “Te Kuraetanga-o-taku-Ihu” (the outward curve of my nose.) It is said he made this claim near the site of the present-day of Hahei.Untouched Places

Harrismith Beach, Barbados

Harrismith Beach is on Barbados, one of the iconic islands of the Caribbean. Any mention of Barbados conjures up images of pirates and treasure, and it still retains an atmosphere of exoticism and adventure even though the Jack Sparrows and Captain Morgans are long gone to Davy Joness locker.

You can still have a castaway experience on this fine stretch of secluded sand because the resort scene is miles away on the islands more developed beaches.

Access is down a cliff face that has steps carved into it and there are the ruins of an old plantation overlooking the sea, bestowing a distinctly romantic air and giving the beach a charm often lacking in some othersUntouched Places
