New Zealand paua shell has beautiful colours. Paua is a species of abalone (Haliotis Iris). These paua shells are only found around New Zealand. Paua eats seaweed and lives clinging to the rocks at depths of 1-10 metres. Paua is found around most of the NZ rocky shoreline.
Mangakuri beach, Hawke’s Bay
One of the best NZ holidays was at Mangakuri (black dog) beach, south of Napier. We stayed on a friend’s family farm and enjoyed diving for paua and also catching crayfish in a craypot. We had to eat crayfish and paua every single day. Tough times… Loved it. I would bike along the beach for miles and miles and miles. Magical and peaceful place…
