Hokitika, is one of the hardest names that I struggle to pronounce correctly. Ho-kit-ti-ka, I believe is how you say it. This is one of my favorite spots on the west coast of New Zealand since it is close to the beach, the town is lively, and the Hokitika gorge is worth seeing while staying a few nights here. The weather was not the best when I had arrived, but spending an entire day at the beach just to watch the sunset was definitely worth it.
