This question already has an answer here:

I've upgraded my laptop to Win10, and I have this wallpaper on my screen:

Archway Islands on Wharariki Beach

Archway Islands on Wharariki Beach

I like this place and I wanted to know - where it exactly is?

Search in Internet gave me this old post about windows wallpapers and similar question on Microsoft site with no answer.

  • These are indeed archway islands on Wharariki Beach, West Coast New Zealand, and they are as amazing as you see them here, we live about 2hrs drive from there and visit quite regularly, the right side of the front island has a seal colony, and in the spring you can see the seal pups! – user48085 Jul 29 '16 at 14:34
