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.

Have to walk down steep path between sand dunes which is marked. Cannot deviate into the sand dunes to protect wild life. Soft sandy path requires care especially as you reach the bottom. Beautiful beach with sea lions. Fur seals seen on the rocks. No penguins as we visited in the day time. Well worth a visit

We visited here recently while travelling the South Island. Main reason for visiting, I have a picture of my Grandmother taken approx 100 years ago on this beach. So it was kind of a trip down memory lane of the pic I have of her.
Lovely sandy beach to walk along, also a board walk type area also. It was a pity many of the tracks up from the beach were water logged and barely walkable.
Still a lovely spot and I am glad we visited.

The beach was small and next to a cargo dock. The dogs enjoyed the run on the beach, dogs not allowed on beach in Summer

Great place for a family. The boardwalk great for anyone on wheels. I walk this often. But see elder person's on ride ons, Mums with prams or little one on trikes with trainer wheels

A wonderful, safe open space with lots of activities open to you. A casual stroll, run or jog, look at the aviaries, well maintained gardens, paddle in pool for wee ones, skate, train on open days, boardwalk or on the sand. Appreciate historic photos of our forebears on the buildings, walk up to cafes via connecting stairs and lift option. Lots of parking for cars, buses and campers.

Enjoyed the boardwalk and gorgeous beach. Lots of driftwood and the sand is so soft. The kids loved the beach.
