Let’s go down a narrow and winding road to a little village called Makara.
The interest of this seaside village is not really the pebble beach, but rather the view to enjoy after walking along the coastline and then climbing up the steep hills.
On a clear day, you get a glimpse of the Marlborough sounds on the other side of the strait. And to fully enjoy the serenity of the place, always choose a windless day, as it can be very exposed.

For me, what gives also some charm to this place is the little valley where the road passes along green pastures and follows the gentle stream running to the sea.
It’s just half an hour from the CBD, but you feel totally immersed in the country.

Depending on the season, I like to see how the light, vegetation and colours give a different feeling to this place yet with a constant sens of harmony.
