Description: Nins Bin was first estabilished in November 1977 as a roadside caravan selling fresh local crayfish. Still to this day it offers just that, right next to the beach for an ulitmate New Zealand experience.Only a 20minute drive north of the Kaikoura Township, it is a perfect stop off point to either dine in or take a crayfish away for your enjoyment later on!

As the title says, look out for this 'caravan' on the coast just north of Kaikoura. Pull in and sample the fresh crayfish on offer. Maybe a touch on the pricey side BUT still worth it.

We took rolls and rolls along and bought a Cray for $55. The Cray was delicious and view was nice but there is little by way of facilities and service was pretty poor.

We enjoyed very competitively priced, freshly steamed crayfish with garlic butter in glorious sunshine overlooking the beach, and were served with a smile and a nice chat. Does it get any better?

What better on a cold windy New Zealand morning than a whitebait sammie, a generous serving of mussels and a hot coffee. Pristine surrounds and friendly service!
