Wharaiki Beach - This is by far one of the coolest beaches in New Zealand ! Huge rock formations, huge sand hills, huge caves, cliffs, dunes , white sand and baby seals . The trail is amazing through farms and beautiful hills . You can even meet peacocks in the car park!
Farewell Spit - Farewell Spit is New Zealand’s longest sand spit (25 km) and a nature reserve. It is an internationally-renowned bird sanctuary with over 90 bird species recorded in the area.
Heaphy Track - One of New Zealand’s nine great walks. Many people choose to walk only to the first or second huts on the track instead of walking its entire length which have toilets and running-water facilities. The Heaphy Track, one of New Zealand’s “Great Walks” is now a Great Ride. Mountain Bikers are now permitted by the Department of Conservation to ride the Heaphy Track between May 1 and September 30.
Takaka township is only a 15-20 minutes drive where you will find lots of shops for retail therapy, cafes, grocery store and markets on Saturdays.
