Bruce Bay is a tiny settlement along the water edge, where the coast road emerges from the forest canyon to reveal sweeping coastal views of the bipolar Tasman Sea, which ranges from a millpond to a thrashing turbulent maelstrom, depending on how it is feeling.
Bruce Bay is a good place for a stop, situated approx. halfway between Haast and Fox Glacier.
Take a walk along the wild rugged beach or stay the night at one of the accommodation places.
Bruce Bay has many historic landmarks.
