  • We arrived late in the afternoon, so we only had a quick look around, but they have all things Paua. They have some lovely jewellery and a playground out the back for the kids.  more »
  • Stopped off here on recommendation of local campsite. Well worth a visit. Really good value NZ stuff including greenstone as well as loads of Paua and other stuff. Ties and t shirts for the men too! F...  more »

  • 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.
  • Advertisements highly exaggerated and raised our expectations too high, only to be rather disappointed. Very small playground, wouldn't entertain a 7 year old for more than 10 minutes. Reasonably ( some high-ish) priced products, but nothing out of the ordinary. Not worth driving long distances for - seemed a lot like every other New Zealand souvenir shop to us. Will not be going again in a hurry
  • I visited twice from Germany. Very nice shop, you can get beautiful paua shells.
  • A great place for me to buy birthday and Christmas presents. Always find the right gift. Friendly and helpful stsff
  • Friendly staff and very reasonably priced Kiwiana gifts the shop was an online store too.
