Coast places: Mokihinui Coastal – wilderness wonderland
Mokihinui is a small coastal settlement located about 40km north of Westport on SH67.
It is nestled between the sea and the foothills of the Glasgow Range, under the western shoulder of Kahurangi National Park. The Mokihinui River is the West Coast’s third largest river. It is one of the country’s top wilderness rivers and has good, trophy-sized fishing throughout its length.
Mokihinui is the perfect place to unwind. Light a beach bonfire, toast some marshmallows, and listen to the waves lapping at your doorstep. The river is a source of whitebait, trout, kahawai and herring while off the beach you can surfcast for rig and snapper.
When you get a little peckish you can drop in to Pub ‘N’ Grub to enjoy the towns friendly country atmosphere in the dining room or takeaway your food and enjoy the outdoors at the nearby beach or picnic spot.
