Okarito is a very small settlement right on the beach of the west coast of the South island of New Zealand. The nearest town to it is Franz Josef glacier.

It's a unique destination rich in wildlife including kiwi and other birds that live on the Okarito lagoon. This wetland area opens to the ocean making it a very good place for birds to breed.
