Beautiful walk along the water front with stairwell access points down to the watwrs edge when the tide is right.
Views are amazing and they go on for miles.
Plenty of cafes, restaurants, coffee stops along the way.
There is a really cool rock pool at the top end (small charge to enter I think)
Great strolling spot to unwind at the end of the day or meet up with famiky and friends for lunch.

This is a lovely beach especially on a sunny day. We parked at St Kilda and walked over the sandhills onto the beach and along to St Clair and then right up to the rocks. It is a great place to take a stroll and just amazing to be part of a city. Well worth a visit. The statue of "Mum's the entrance to the beach is a fitting tribute to the first sea lion to breed on the mainland.

Loved this beach not only because of its natural beauty but also because of the feeling of an integral part of the community and the city. Great to see people come to enjoy the beach in different ways. Spotted sea lions and various types of birds.

Want to strut along a picturesque esplanade, then this is the place for you. Lovely little seaside town of St Clair will easily start your love affair with Dunedin. It’s such a gorgeous place with sweeping panoramic, great coffee shops and the salt baths at the end.

Broad stretch of sandy beach which would be great in summer, but a little bit cool in June.

Long walkway with easy access and close to a number of shops and restaurants

A cute suburb by the sea with a great surf beach and promenade to stroll along. A bit bracing at times but then it is a surf beach!
