Attraction details
Owner description: A unique opportunity to experience beautiful New Zealand beaches in the company of adorable alpacas. All our alpacas are halter trained so you can safely walk down the beach leading your own alpaca. You can choose whether or not you want to venture into the shallow water. The alpacas will be happy to go into the water up to knee level, especially if it is a hot day.The beaches are quiet with magnificent views of distant islands and headlands.There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions about these gentle animals with their huge eyes and long eyelashes. The alpaca beach walk is now only available to our farmstay guests. Please see our website for details.

The opportunity to take a beach walk with Alpacas was a once in a lifetime opportunity! My daughter and I found the Farmstay on the internet while planning our north island trip. The owners were gracious and welcoming in opening their home to us. The dinner was great and the accommodations lovely. There aren't enough positive words to describe the experience of walking the alpacas. Pav was patient and thorough in educating us about alpacas and in ensuring both our safety and theirs. We appreciated her trust in us, we admired her expertise and we enjoyed her delightful personality. If ever we return to NZ, we will plan a longer stay at the Kandiah Alpaca Farmstay!

Pav and Mark, the hosts of this amazing farmstay made our 2 day stopover a very relaxed and welcoming experience. On the first day we strolled along Uretiti Beach on a sunny winters day with two beautiful suri alpaca girls, and paddled in the water. Pav was very informative and welcoming which helped us relax and enjoy our interacting with these amazing creatures, that intrigued us with their proud, serene personalities. Pav cooked us a delicious home cooked meal on the first night, which was great to be able to sit and share the stories of their life in the country with alpacas. I would highly recommend this as a great place to get away and unwind, plus you can't help but be drawn into the alpacas calming nature which seems to rub off on you as well.

It was best beach walk with alpaca we never ever had. We love it. Pav the lovely lady who owns the Alpacas gives very good instructions before the walk of what to expect and how to handle the Alpacas. She also walks with us and took the photoes for us too. We would certainly recommend this. Yingchao and Teller from Auckland.

This is a MUST for all alpaca, or even animal, lovers. Where do I start... arriving at the beautiful, warm and welcoming home/farm stay of Pav &Mark's. They are great hosts and make you feel very welcome sharing with you their experiences of setting up the alpaca farm. Pav is so great with the animals and they are at ease with her but she is also great at instructing how to walk with them on the beach. They actually seem to enjoy the walking on the beach and our alpacas stayed in the water much of the time, even though it wasnt a warm day. Not only this but then being able to then hand feed and meet all of their alpacas is brilliant. I would highly recommend the beach walk and staying at the farm stay.

If you are wanting something different walking Alpacas along a beach is just amazing. What lovely gentle creatures. Pav the lovely lady who owns the Alpacas gives very good instructions before the walk of what to expect and how to handle the Alpacas. She also walks with you. This is certainly suitable for children. You can arrange to just walk with the Alpacas or stay with Pav and Mark at their homestay. Wonderful hosts, lovely accommodation and meals, which are optional, and most of all being up close with the Alpacas. We would certainly recommend this.
