Dawn at Long Point

Long Point

A coastal jewel on a stunning coastline

The location of  a Yellow-Eyed Penguin Trust reserve. Nature lovers will find plenty to enjoy here.

Long Point is just a short drive further on from Purakaunui Bay which is approximately 20 kms south of Owaka.

NZ fur seals and sea lions, numerous sea birds, rare coastal plant communities, small remnants of a natural forest and an archaeological site can be observed here. Quite reliable surfing.
