New Zealand's Totaranui Beach's Golden Sands

This golden beach in New Zealand's Abel Tasman National Park enjoys its quiet time round the year, then explodes with hikers and campers in the #summer.

The intense golden-colored sands here are caused by a high concentration of orthoclase minerals, eroded from the nearby granites.

Being situated within a National Park means that this is a resort-free beach -- be prepared to rough it in the sands (or a tent) if you intend to visit!
