Okarito is a beautiful secluded small village surrounded by Westland National Park, Okarito Lagoon and the Tasman Sea. There are wonderful views of Mt Cook and the Southern Alps. There are great opportunities for birdwatching and exploring Okarito Lagoon - either by kayak rental or guided tour, or by boat tour. The surrounding forest is home to the Okarito Brown Kiwi (Rowi) and there are night time kiwi spotting tours available also.
