Golden Bay

Located at the top of the South Island, Golden Bay is a haven at the end of a road that leads you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The main shopping centre is the township of Takaka – a charming place, where local colour abounds and the people smile at you in the street.

You can find the Sandcastle by heading towards the Abel Tasman National Park (as shown in the map below).

Drive until you get to the beach, then take the first road on the right (Pohara Valley Road – you’ll see the Sandcastle sign) and then right again into Haile Lane. We’re at the end – you can’t miss us…
