My husband and I may have the chance to visit northern South Island in mid March in and we had Golden Bay recommended to us for 4-6 nights .
There seems to be a number of different 'villages' or townships. Is any place any better than another? We were considering renting a bach as this seems cheaper than the hotels and there seem to be quite a number on the waterfront.
We like the ocean, possibly some kayaking and walking and my husband is a keen fisherman.
Thanks for the assistance.
