“West Coasts Best.”
Review of Hokitika Beach

Hokitika township is a beautiful place to visit as is the Hokitika Beach. The beach changes from one day to the next can be beautiful or a wild beast. During the summer the beach is decorated with drift wools sculptures all along the beach which looks amazing. The West Coast can be a lovely part of NZ and has plenty to offer.

I personally love this rugged, dark beach with black sands. I’m surprised it’s still there considering how heavy the waves crash into the bank. Its great looking out for hector dolphins and washed up trees just wrap up as it is rather windswept.

Love the noise of the waves even before being near the beach. Impressive sight those big massive rocks. Love seeing the hokitka driftwood sign being rebuild after cyclone destroyed previous one. Great for walking along in the wind when love tide . Lots of stones and rocks though.
