a lovely place to visit with a nice beach- also good for walks on the land and I like the fact that they are protecting native birds from predators

One of the nicest beaches in New Zealand - except in high summer when it is really busy. Go at a quiet time and have the whole place to yourself!

Just visited again after a few years, for a mid-fall camping trip. Hardly any campers out there this time of year, so only shared the all-modes campground with 10 or so others. The pukekos and fantails definitely outnumbered us this visit. As we weren't up...More
