From the North Taranaki Bight in NZ, the sky over New Plymouth looks like a ball of fire at sunset as the sun hides behind a strip of clouds. New Plymouth is located in the Taranaki region of NZ and you can watch an amazing sunset on plenty of occasions in the summer.
The view from North Taranaki Bight is also an added attraction as you can see for miles past New Plymouth out over the horizon.
New Plymouth is the port and main city in the Taranaki area on the west coast of the North Island of NZ and is a service center for the region's principal economics. As New Plymouth is located along the water's edge, you do not have to travel far to see the sky turn incredible colors at sunset.
The fabulous city of New Plymouth, Taranaki is noted for being a city with a mountain within 30 minutes away where visitors can snowboard, ski, water ski and surf all in the same day. By the time their day is over they are ready to relax and watch the sky turn into a fiery array of colors at sunset before darkness takes over for the night.
