Autumn Evening Beach Walks

March is a wonderful month to visit New Zealand and the West Coast.

Rapahoe Sunset

Headed down to the local pub last night – Rapahoe Hotel for dinner with our friends visiting from Berlin.

Great crowd and a favourite with our guests who get the opportunity to experience what I like to call a true blue Kiwi country pub with super friendly locals, sublime location and great pub food. 54 more words

On a recent visit we met a lovely young man who has talent to burn when it comes to utilising this facility with his bike. 118 more words
