Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Ocean is beautiful cause it belongs to Earth. It was here before you and it will be here after you. Enjoy the Earth. It is a place to visit.

Beautiful white sand for miles that follows the gorgeous coastline right from Dunedin Esplinade right down to Tommahawk & Smaills Beach!
Great family spot to have a day out, picnic, relax in the sun or go for a leasurely stroll.
The views are stunning, people are great, environment is well kept & clean whilst not too manicured.
Theres PLENTY of room everywhere for everyone.
Note: Photos attached are of both Smaills Beach/Tommahawk Beach areas (they run along into each other from what I gather)

Dunedin Beach is a sweeping white sand beach which is just minutes from central city. Lovely crystal clear blue water.

Not the warmest of days to go to the beach, however it was breathtaking. Small coffee shops and areas to sit was great. This will be magical in summer

The wind and waves were very strong and the water cold. It did not stop numerous surfers from being out on the water. The beach is very long and walkable.

In and around Dunedin are many beautiful bays and beaches, many of them are yellow sand beaches, some of them are grey or b;ack sand beaches. The beaches are good for surfers, swimmers and other watersport activities. Also wildlife can be seen on the beaches such as sea lions, fur seals and penguins.

We enjoyed a stroll along here on a windy day. Surf was up and we did see a few people loving it. Finding a parking space was a bit difficult though.
