Lyall Bay is a beautiful place to visit and relax. I recommend coming here on a sunny day and spending the day on the beach. There are great cafes near by to stop off for lunch.

It's a beautiful beach, a place for people and pets both. Surfers, too, if the waves are good. In addition to the sand, there is a paved walk way all around the bay. Toilets and play area for the kids. Numerous really good cafes along the way, too. Great spot on a great day. Bus #3 runs along here.

We were fortunate enough to be staying in an AirBnB high on the cliff overlooking the bay. Stunning views by both day and night, and a real pleasure to drive around as part of the scenic Wellington Harbour coastline.

We took our daughter and her dog here to walk on the dog friendly beach. And you can watch the aircraft arriving at the airport.

It is very easy to go to Lyall Bay. When the weather is nice, one can see a lot of people surfing. There are several ways for people to go to the beach and to take a short walk. However, there is hardly a shelter around should the wind and rain arrive suddenly. Note that Wellington is famous for its sudden rain gusty wind.
