Gorgeous Golden BayIf you're into gorgeous beach scenery, take time to visit beautiful Golden Bay at the northern tip of the South Island.
Providing the beautiful coastline for both the Abel Tasman National Park and Kahurangi National Park, Golden Bay’s remoteness is one if its finest assets. From Motueka, it is rather a grueling drive over the Takaka Hill, the only way in and the only way out of Golden Bay by road. But the trip is worth it! Check out the plethora of local art and craft in the small towns, try fishing for salmon at Anatoki Salmon, stroll the long, languid beach at Pohara or sink your toes into the golden sand at Tata Beach. Bliss!

Thank you again for the refund on the motel at Kaiteriteri, much appreciated as it did cover the cost of the Greymouth motel.
People keep asking me what were the highlights of the trip, and it's very hard to say. I just loved the country, so beautiful, unpopulated, and with friendly people everywhere. We were challenged to our limits by the Tongariro Crossing, saw amazing wildlife - blue penguins, seals, Albatross, kiwis and enjoyed great food everywhere as the quality of your fish, lamb and steak is of the highest. We had the best fish and chips ever in the shop in Portobello!
The three places I would have loved to spend more time in were Portobello, Kaiteriteri (to walk the whole of the Abel Tasman which is so beautiful) and Whitianga as again, the Coromandel is an incredibly beautiful area. While we were there we had a wonderful afternoon at The Lost Spring, with fantastic massages - would definitely recommend that to everyone!
We enjoyed it all and I, at least, have been left wanting to see and do more, so who knows, might be back!
Thanks again for all your superb work on our behalf, which made it all so smooth and easy for us.
Hope all is well with you, Very best wishes,
