Typical rugged coastline of the West Coast.

The West Coast region reaches from Kahurangi Point in the north to Awarua Point in the south, a distance of 600 km. Much of the land is rugged, although there are coastal plains around which much of the population resides. The land is very scenic, with wild coastlines, mountains, and a very high proportion of native bush, much of it native temperate rain forest.
