We are nearing the end ou our 4 week road trip thru NZ. We have covered the south island and are now at Paihai and did a whole day Cream Cruise of the islands yesterday. Today we want to find a great beach with bathroom facilities for the afternoon. We were recommended to drive to Matauri Bay. Not sure we want to go that far.
Also, tomorrow we head for Kaitaia and are unsure what to do! We had planned driving our car to Cape Regina but most reviewers sat the self drive is not really worth it and we really don't want to drop $$$ on a bus tour up that goes on the beach. What are your views on how to spend a day in that area. We have considered taking time in the Kerikeri area to taste wine at four wineries on our way.
Any suggestion? This fourum has provided a wealth of information and has allowed us to get the most out of our trip! Kudos to all of you on or visiting TripbAdvisor!!!!
