Yet another awesome few days at Purangi in February. This time we stayed in the Sunflower Chalet, which looks out over the estuary ... waking up and being able to look out over the water from bed is such a joy. Kayaking up the estuary, wandering around the rocks to pick mussels, a glass of wine in the evening looking out over the water, and endless swimming. We can also thoroughly recommend the ice cream parlour in Hahei. The day after I left, I already wanted to go back. The perfect place for taking it easy ... if you need a good break from the stresses of life, go immediately. Give yourself at least three nights, but more if you can.
