She was Xena, a mighty Warrior Princess forged in the heat of battle ...

And, instead of Greece, she roamed north New Zealand, mostly Bethells (west of Auckland). Believe it or not, most locations in the show where actually filmed in a few hundred of square meters that are easy to spot if you travel to Bethells beach, an amazing, large sandy beach which is almost empty with respect to european standards. This one, I did there, in my notebook.

Close to the beach, there is this huge dune where many episodes start or end and, for example, Xena and Callisto fought and chariots raced in the second episode. Plus behind the dune there is the lake that appears in Mortal Beloved or at the end of season 3.
