Accommodation includes B&Bs and motels, a comfortable resort and an excellent clifftop lodge with amazing views.
Flounder is a local specialty – if you see it on the menu, order it. While there are several places to eat, the quality is hit and miss. By far the best is the cafe attached to the tourist office in Opononi. There's a decent fish-and-chip shop in Opononi, and sit-down meals can be had in the pub and the resort.
