If you like walking along the beach to hear the water and birds then take a walk along here. You can walk for many kilometres collecting rocks and shells. If you get tired walking on the sand there is a boardwalk that follows the beach.

One of the nicer beaches in Wellington as long as it is not too windy. Good for a sea swim, beach, sports grounds and cafes

We used to come all the time when the girls were small. There's a pool and playground and then the beach. The beach itself is very stony but still a nice walk.Cute shops nearby. Nice afternoon.

Lovely view over the harbour to Wellington however the beach has many large pebbles which is a bit bothersome at first. Not usually crowded though which is a bonus!
