The beach and some mysterious caves
Tomahawk beach is an easy access beach close to Dunedin. So easy in fact, that if you have a four wheel drive at low tide, just drive right on to it. Tomahawk isn't named after the small Axe, it is a translation from the old Maori name, and means "dance by a gravesite". At it's southern side are some small tidal caves that you can walk into, it looks as if at some point someone tried to close them up. I can't find any information on that. On the far side you have some mighty sand dunes you can slide down and some great wild life to watch. There is also a playground and an abandoned school, if you know where to look.
