This is my third day on the west coast, and so I have only very little advice to give to other visitors. My advice is this: visit Punakaiki. But don't just go to see the Pancake rocks & blowholes and then move on, which is what most people do. Instead, stick around for a day or two; walk the Truman track (15 mins from road to beach, or if you stay at Te Nikau Retreat YHA/BBH you can walk from there), and walk up Bullock Creek road (6km) to the Cave Creek track and do that. And when the path is cleared (it was closed during my stay) walk up the Pororari River Track. This part of the coast is rainforest. It's beautiful.

Granity is on the coast, between forest-covered hills and the sea. Granity and the two small adjacent villages of Ngakawau and Hector have 3 cafes, a very small grocery shop, 2 hostels, 2 pubs, a craft shop, a gallery ... all the essentials!
