South of Fox Glacier there is no mobile phone coverage. None. I was surprised to come across this in 2015! Good news though, the scenery is amazing, so you don't need social media for a couple of days! There isn't much to Haast itself, but around the area there is a lovely river and one lane bridge, beaches, mountains and even penguins. We drove out to Jackson Bay, which is as far as the West Coast road goes. Just remember to wear long legged pants, long sleeved shirts, and cover yourself entirely with insect repellent before exiting the car!
