It's only a kilometres walk to Kaiteriteri Beach. And dogs are allowed (except during the peak months of Dec/Jan).
There were lots of trees around for shade and the area was large and flat.
While I was in the Kaiteriteri area I went for a walk along the beach, and the golden sand seemed to pop out.
The next stop was 'Split Apple Rock'.
And, then to finish the tiki tour ... a visit to 'The Source of the Riwaka'.
