First glance of the beach from the beach access on the main road is the "Hokitika" sign made from driftwood. The second thing i noticed was that the beach was full of drift wood. Upon closer inspection the wood and stones were fashioned into something, noticed a few houses and a few unidentifiable piles along the coast.
It was an interesting walk, although I didn't have much time so could only get to the beach and back.

A typical rugged West Coast beach. It's not a beach for swimming so you'll have to keep an eye on your kids but they'll love exploring the beach with all it's driftwood and stones. Great to visit after the driftwood sculpture comp has been on.

I gaze out to a storm tossed sea and contemplate the 1200 km of empty ocean between New Zealand's South Island West Coast and Australia. A great time to visit is late January for the Driftwood and Sand Sculpture festival. A must attraction for those on the West Coast Wilderness cycle/walking trail.

Such a therapeutic walk along the rugged beach of this cool wee town of Hokitika, to recharge the batteries of body, mind and soul in total gratitude of exploring this wonderful country known as the South Island of New Zealand.

The black sand and pebbles contrasted against the crashing waves makes for a beautiful beach. Add in a funky driftwood Hokitika sign and driftwood strewn all over the beach and its a pretty memorable site!
