Nothing, in my mind, is better than camping out on the beach, and a beach in the Bay of Islands New Zealand at that! After our overnight sailing trip we headed on a water taxi to Urupukapuka Island where we hitched the tent and spend the afternoon walking around the little island before making cheese quesadillas and playing games in the tent during the early evening storm!
