Where I stayed
Alpha Motel and Holiday Park
On route back to Auckland we joined the surfers at the gorgeous wind-swept Pakiri beach with its rolling sand dunes. It felt so like England we were rather glad we would be returning so soon.
Our final stop was Goat Island Reserve where I briefly entertained the idea of snorkelling though the icy water soon put me off. Luckily fish can be seen simply from standing on the outlying rocks because the marine life is that abundant here!
It was a great way to round off a fantastic and rather unexpected trip into Northland but one I'd highly recommend.
