Discover the beauty of Pūrākaunui Bay, a well-known beautiful stretch of Catlins coastline. This spot is a surfer's paradise, attracting adventurers from all over the world, thanks to some of the largest winter waves in New Zealand. Take in the bay’s breathtaking sea cliffs, which were featured in the Chronicles of Narnia film (the Kingdom's capital, Cair Paravel, was computer-generated onto the tops!).  For a beach-side camping experience, stay in the DOC campsite and spot seals and sea lions from your site. Take the time to explore the bush backdrop and nearby triple-tiered Pūrākaunui Falls
