We're looking to spend a low key two weeks at Golden Bay and I'm totally confused as to where might be a good area to base ourselves. I'm not sure how the roads are and the driving times, so what I'm thinking of are two possible approaches. I'd really appreciate some insight and suggestions!
1. Choose a bach that seems to be in the middle of Golden Bay and stay for two weeks.
2. Choose two bachs, one on each end of Golden Bay and stay in each for one week.
We're interested in exploring and also just hanging out each day so my husband & I can do our creative projects.
Here's what looks interesting:
Takaka - artist and craftspeople - Golden Bay Artists Trail, visiting studios
Wharariki Beach & unique landforms, in western Golden Bay
Cape Farewell/Pillar Point Lighthouse Track – from Wharariki Beach -5km one way
Farewell Spit day tour
Walking in Able Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks
Enjoy eating in local places
If there are places where we might listen to live music at night that would be fun
Thanks in advance!
