Move here for the best weather in the country, with temperatures ranging from mid to high 20’s in the summer and, on average, 5 to 16 °C in the middle of the winter months. This region is famous for its unique combination of beaches and forests. The spectacular ocean beach provides some of the best surfing breaks and yet the safest swimming in New Zealand.

An area school available within the town which caters for pupils aged 5 to 18. Two golf courses, one 9-hole and an 18-hole course, are also available within the town.
