Lovely stretch of NZ coast, easy to access and close to city . Well managed by local council, toilets, water, showers (cold)all free. The city end is dog free but furry friends are welcome at the far end of the beach .

Tahunanui beach has beautiful sunsets and the water is so good. The dunes are great for walking on and it is next to a small forest which contains places like Laser Tag.
