Charleston is a small coastal town located about 25 minutes from Westport, on the West Coast. The village once boasted a gold mining population of 5,000 and more pubs than permanent houses but is now better known for its extensive limestone caves and the Nile River. The sheltered beach at Constant Bay is a great place to picnic with the kids and the walks to Constant and Joyce Bays give great coastal views. more
For the adventurous, there are guided caving tours from eco-tours into a glowworm cave to full on adventure caving. The Tiropahi Tram mountain bike Track is a great mixed grade ride and the Tiropahi Walk visits an old bush tramway. Charleston is also a place for those who like rock climbing with routes bolted on the cliff faces.
