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

When I lived in Wellington 20 years ago I never visited this place except in bad weather. It’s a lovely spot on a nice day. The wharf is great for jumping for the kids and you can kayak or SUP easily. Nice drive there too.

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.

This is a pleasant beach and township to visit when the weather is fine but it's very exposed when it's wet and windy.

We caught the ferry and bus to Eastbourne. A small village with an interesting but small antiques and curios shop. A couple of cafes. The beach such as it is could be described as picturesque with it's grey sand. Good bus connections to Lower Hutt...More

This beach can be a bit stony, but offers another choice for city dwellers wanting time outdoors, and with a newly constructed kids playground what more could you ask for to entertain the kids of all ages, and a summer swim pool too! Goes without...More

We ended up going there at least three days a week in the summer period, excellent swimming on the beach, good beach area to relax and play. Had a number of picnics on this beach.

If you enjoy a nice stroll along the sea front, with decent coffee shops this is just fine. The path is tarmac and therefore user friendly for all, the views across to the city side of inlet a super
