Cottage | Warrington Beach | #5960
Blueskin cottage has a panoramic view over the estuary. In the evening if its very still over the water its particularly stunning.
The cottage is surrounded in a variety of native plants that attract the large wood pigeons & bell-birds. There is always the sound of birds.
Two km's away is the surf patrolled Warrington beach, there is a lovely walk to the end of the spit which ends at the mouth of the estuary a return walk can be taken on the inside of the spit.
When the tide is low enough you can collect clams (cockles) from the beds either side of the shallow channel which is nearest to the cottage.
There is a children's park next to the domain area behind the beach on the spit, good for picnics.
In the summer if the tide is coming in at the end of the day the water will warm up over the sand so paddling or swimming is recommended.
A few minutes away is Blueskin nursery which has an great cafe with excellent food & of course lots plants & handicrafts.
The Orokonui eco-sanctuary is on the road to Port Chalmers after turning off at Waitati. There is a very interesting visitor centre with displays about the native species they are working with.
There is a good cafe with wonderful views over the bay with the Silver Peaks as a backdrop.
Karitane is a fishing village 10 km's up the coast rd, you can hire kayaks or pop into the shop for ice creams. Explore the rocks at the south end of a the lovely beach.
Dunedin is less than twenty minutes away & there is a long list of things to do there & places to eat, a variety of Asian cafe style eateries to great restaurants like Plato for seafood and interesting surroundings,
