After having seen the Cathedral Caves we went on to Curio Bay. It was suggested that we go there by people we met in Dunedin and we were not disappointed.
The camp ground was not to the standards we would normally accept, but the location was incredible. The ocean was right below our site, which was well sheltered due to thick growth of New Zealand Flax, which was used to delineate the different camp sites. we knew we were going to be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the ocean and this made the camp ground worth it.
It was an extra surprise to learn that the endangered and rarely seen Hector's dolphins are often seen in this bay! We went for a walk on the beach and we saw the dolphins in the bay, and even surfing in the waves around very lucky swimmers! It was an impressive sight!
