Enjoy a genuine West Coast experience in and around Barrytown, located overlooking the Tasman Sea at the foot of the majestic Paparoa Ranges. Barrytown beach is renowned for its precious jade pebbles. Barrytown is home to an eclectic mix of artists and craftspeople, and you have the opportunity to craft your own knife at Barrytown Knifemaking.

Enjoy bush walks and stroll along the beach, or the more adventurous can try kayaking, rafting, caving, surfing, jet boating, glacier walks, scenic flights, fishing, horse treks, four-wheel biking and more. Barrytown is between Greymouth and the pancake rocks at Punakaiki, and is only 25 minutes away from the Tranz Alpine Express.
