Nice beach
Aug 2020
A large beach, more accessible at lower tides.
The density of shells is interesting.
A nice easy drive out with no difficulties.

a hidden gem
May 2020
Make the most of a day on the port side of Dunedin, coffee in Port Chalmers, lunch at Careys Bay Hotel and a drive to Aramoana beach where you may see seals, sealions, local divers and an abundance of bird life

Another splendid beach near Dunedin at the sea entrance of the port of Dunedin
Nov 2019
We were here early morning, the weather was very fine, blue sky and hardly wind. We took our breakfast sitting on a bench at the beginning of the jetty and in front of the beach. A red billed gull was watching us, hoping for a crump of our sandwitches! At sea a large fishing trawler picked up the pilot and sailed through the narrow entrance of the Dunedin harbour bay. A little later we walked along the beach. The water here is very clear and the dunes are covered with Yellow Lupines and Pink-purple asters. A coupe of Oyster catchers was dancing at the water line. A little further a Paradise Shelduck male was sleeping, waked up and walked away. Gulls adna NZ Falcon fly high in the blue sky and on the way back a beautiful female sea lion was making here bed for a late morning nap! She gave us all the time we needed to take our pictures from a close distance, Nature here is splendid.

Very pretty drive from Dunedin
Feb 2020
This makes a really good day trip from Dunedin. Drive to Port Chalmers which has great little café's for brunch or lunch. Then go on to Aramoana, which is only another 15 minute for a walk. On a sunny day it's a great day out.

A good scenic drive
Feb 2020
Expect the unexpected on the drive out there. Stop for a refreshment at Careys Bay then enjoy the water views. Great unexpected sandy beach and some nice walks.

Astounding beauty, a must visit
Jan 2020
On a sunny day there is no spot more beautiful. The blue ocean with pale fine sand is ‘heaven on earth’ - all the better if you are able to walk the length of one or both beaches. The wind in your hair, sand between your toes and sound of the waves and birds is very soothing and refreshing. Do put time aside to breath in the air here!!

"Far from the maddening crowd"

A beautiful piece of paradise, the water was so blue, and even the feisty sea lion on the beach was a joy...worth the time going..

Lovely sandy beach at mouth of the harbour
Apr 2019
It's a narrow windy road out to Aramoana, but it's a lovely settlement. The breakwater provides plenty of shelter for this great sandy beach - amazing to think they wanted to put an aluminium smelter here in the 1980s! Great views across to Taiaroa Head.
