Photo: Tasman Sea Coastline West Coast South Island New Zealand

Situated 22 kilometres west of the Fox Glacier townsite, the gravely shores of Gillespies Beach face the Tasman Sea coastline on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

The rugged west coast of the South Island of New Zealand is softened by the beautiful sunset hues which light the evening sky. These waters are those of the Tasman Sea which is a body of water stretching between New Zealand's West Coast and Australia's South East Coast, it forms a part of the South Pacific Ocean.

Back on the New Zealand shores of the Tasman Sea at Gillespies Beach, this stretch of coastline is a popular recreational area offering camping, fishing from the shore, and beachcombing not to mention the stupendous west coast sunsets on display each evening. This Tasman Sea coastline is littered with battered driftwood and smooth pebbles.

This beach is also situated close to Fox Glacier, a famous New Zealand tourist destination on the West Coast. ... continue below the picture...

... The Fox Glacier reaches 13 kilometres from the mountains to just 250 metres above sea level - just short of the this coastline.

Another highlight of Gillespies Beach are the numerous seals which congregate along the coastline during winter. A few stragglers can also be seen during the summer months.
