We came for the kayaking and were sad to leave when it was over. My partner and I will be coming back with a camper van so we can spend a few weeks here.

We only had a few hours on this beach in total during our stay in kaiteriteri. It's a lovely little beach, very clean with soft sand and a blue sea. Great place to see the stars at night.

My husband and I went to new Zealand to visit my brother and we visited kaiteriteri. So small but absolutely beautiful. The beach is stunning. We ate in the bar restaurant here and the food was lovely. So many different activities for all ages here.

How do we get from Nelson airport to Kaiteriteri on 2nd January in the morning please. Is there a shuttle, or do we need to hire a car. How far is it and how long will it take?
