Causeway & Ford
The other major achievement of the Koitiata community is the beach access causeway. Many who use the track to the beach are not aware that it is man-made via the efforts and labour of Koitiata residents. Although the access is currently high and dry, the documents and photos below show that getting over to the beach can at times be a challenge.
