The windswept coastal settlement of Makara Beach is surprisingly sheltered, making this the ideal destination when the bitter winds of Lambton Quay signal its tempestuous onslaught. The rocky coastline at the end of the winding 11 kilometer drive from town is a trap for shellfish and driftwood, and the Makara Walkway begins here for those who have a full day at their disposal. For others, the local cafe is the main attraction and a pleasant place to wile away a winter afternoon.
