very vibrant place on a nice day, watch the ferries in and out of port, little boats, canoes, dragon boats, people jogging, walking cycling, plenty of eateries, cafes, ice cream, swimming at the beach (warm day), fryberg swimming pool, tugboat restaurant, pleanty of fish being caught in particular Kaiwahi, great place to just sit and enjoy a coffee or ice cream with friends, just watching the water.

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.
