Swift praise for Bethells Beach

Taylor Swift has called Bethells Beach "the most beautiful beach I've ever been on in my life" in a behind-the-scenes video about her time spent filming here.

Swift (pictured) caused a furore when she visited New Zealand twice late last year, filming the video for her single Out of the Woods in Auckland and Queenstown before going on a road trip with family in the South Island.

The four-minute clip shows Swift between scenes on Bethells Beach, calling the shoot "so surreal all of us are just freaking out over it".

Her visit wasn't without controversy: it was alleged the company making the video breached its permit by taking up to 12 vehicles on to the beach, when it only had approval for two.
