  • A turist trap in my view, but if you are into sea shells with nice colored patterned. You should go here.
  • This place is amazing. So much stuff and not the usual stuff you get everywhere
  • Loved this gift shop.. went back the next day too 🤣🤣
  • You can get nice kiwi souvenirs at a good price
  • Touristic store, quite expensive, friendly staff. My opinion that the whole idea of Paua shells is over rated. Still worth visiting for once at least.
