Agricultural tours are popular in this region as well. Feeling a bit more adventurous, why not book a Helicopter tour of the region? And if you are looking to wind down you can check out one of the areas golf resorts in the morning and then relax at one of our black sand beaches in the afternoon. Back Beach is a local favourite.
