Cosy Nook, Pahia, Southland, New Zealand

Cosy Nook, Pahia, Southland, New Zealand

Description: The true name of this cove is Mullet Bay. Now a cosy place with a few holiday batches / cribs / shacks, it used to be a safe haven for fishing boats.
The place was named by Captain George Thomson after his homeland Scottish village Cozy Neuk.
Half a kilometre east of the cove used to be thriving Maori village.
The chief of the settlement was Pahi (hence the name Pahia). John Boultbee (an educated sealer) recorded that Pahi and about 40 of his tribe drowned when their waka sank on the way back from the muttonbird islands in the mid-1820s.
