Located at the northern end of the Kaitorete Spit, which holds back Lake Ellesmere, this pebbly beach has an unrivaled feeling of wildness and space. Out here you feel you are on the very edge of the South Island. On stormy days, southerly swells crash onto the exposed beach and large flocks of terns and gulls shelter on the stones. After each storm subsides, rock hounds can pick up agates among the newly-turned shingle on the beach. The lonely, windswept aspect of the area is softened slightly by a dowdy collection of huts and cottages clustered on the shore.
