About Farewell Spit

This sand spit is on the Northern end of South Island. In fact it is the most Northern point of the Island.This sand bar extends into the Golden bay. It almost looks like a small desert surrounded by water. Covered with golden sand this is the longest spit in New Zealand and runs east to west. It is a very popular place among tourists. You can camp here overnight, but warn you it gets very cold during the night.
