Lovely view over the harbour to Wellington however the beach has many large pebbles which is a bit bothersome at first. Not usually crowded though which is a bonus!

This is a pleasant beach and township to visit when the weather is fine but it's very exposed when it's wet and windy.

We caught the ferry and bus to Eastbourne. A small village with an interesting but small antiques and curios shop. A couple of cafes. The beach such as it is could be described as picturesque with it's grey sand. Good bus connections to Lower Hutt and Pentone.

This beach can be a bit stony, but offers another choice for city dwellers wanting time outdoors, and with a newly constructed kids playground what more could you ask for to entertain the kids of all ages, and a summer swim pool too! Goes without saying that parking around this area is FREE too. Boaties/fishermen...there is a small ramp on... More

We ended up going there at least three days a week in the summer period, excellent swimming on the beach, good beach area to relax and play. Had a number of picnics on this beach.

If you enjoy a nice stroll along the sea front, with decent coffee shops this is just fine. The path is tarmac and therefore user friendly for all, the views across to the city side of inlet a super

Not my favorite place to hang out but a lovely little inner Harbour township. On a good day there's great views of the Heads of Wellington Harbour and the Harbour itself. Great walking location can get incredible windy particularly in the southerlies.

A great spot for a wander on a sunny Sunday morning. The views across to Wellington are fabulous, the path is easy, and the dogs are friendly.
