A great spot to park up and watch planes fly in and out on a windy day/evening. On a lovely day grab some fish & chips and relax

Beautiful spot for a swim on a nice day. A couple of great cafes around too. Would suggest either going by car or being prepared to walk as they are a little spread out along the bay.

Lyall Bay is a beautiful place to visit and relax. I recommend coming here on a sunny day and spending the day on the beach. There are great cafes near by to stop off for lunch.

We were fortunate enough to be staying in an AirBnB high on the cliff overlooking the bay. Stunning views by both day and night, and a real pleasure to drive around as part of the scenic Wellington Harbour coastline.

We took our daughter and her dog here to walk on the dog friendly beach. And you can watch the aircraft arriving at the airport.

It is very easy to go to Lyall Bay. When the weather is nice, one can see a lot of people surfing. There are several ways for people to go to the beach and to take a short walk. However, there is hardly a shelter...More
