Kaiteriteri just south of the Able Tasman National Park in Golden Bay.
The golden sands and blue water here bring people from all over the world.
At the north end of the park (a long tramp or short boat ride) you will find Akaroa Lodge.
This is a four star wilderness lodge right in the middle of the bush and a short walk to Golden bay. It's remote and it's a fantastic fun place. While Rob and I never stayed in the luxury accommodation we did have a full meal and a brew or two after a big day on our feet before starting the long trip back to Nelson.
