Walked out and watched the sea lions finding their lunch. Enjoyed the vistas over to Taiaroa Head where we had seen the albatross colony day before. Well worth the drive out from Dunedin

Nice beach to arrive to after a bit of a scenic drive. Walk to the end of the groin is worthwhile to see the relics of the old wharf along the way. Information board at the start has good detail on this history of the groin, efforts to get it and the wharf built. Beach is good to take walk along.

Aramoana Beach is a beautiful white sandy beach which is split by a Mole. We were able to see few wildlife species.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
