Just about any water sport you can think of is available on the Catlins Coast. Surfing, fishing, water-skiing, boating, and swimming are all offered as ways to enjoy the ocean waters, with golfing, horse-back riding, tennis, and more nearby. The unique wildlife is appreciated throughout the area, and there are a number of walks that lead you through the coastal landscape if you’re keen on seeing a Guanaco or a Highland cattle beast.
