Swimming and sunbathing are popular in summer, as are walking, skating, cycling and generally socialising in a pleasant seaside environment. Beside the CBD but not in it, this is a great place to relax, with the addition of cafes, swimming pool and good views.

Walkers/ runners/ cyclists and skaters head this way. Lovely water bay views. watch the boats or ships come in/out. Stop and have brunch at one of the lovely cafes or restaurants surrounding the area. Their is a park for the kids. i love window shopping of the houses and apartments and even hotels nearby.

Reminded me of an old English beach resort though seriously lacking in a range of dining facilities. Oick your day with Wellington's flukey weather.

Walking down looking at the harbour, the boats, the people, the architecture of the houses is a must. in good weather you can have a swim by the little sandy beach and the playground for the children is delightful. Plenty of places to grab an ice-cream, a drink or a meal.
