What a place. You expect to see dinosaurs coming out of the bush. Views to die for.
Good clean DoC facilities.

Sandflies are absolutely feral. Take long sleeves, repellent and a flamethrower, but go there you will love it

Beautiful coastal walk on the Heaphy Track, hundreds of Nikau Palms, great waves and beaches all the way. Toilets at Scotts Beach and Katipo Creek Shelter - go as far as you like and back.
