“Good views”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

It's a great place to relax on the beach or grab an ice cream at the shop across the road. This is a good place to take kids to enjoy some free fun on the beach in a relaxed atmosphere. I hidden gem in Wellington and a great drive around to the bay through the old defence force area at Shelley Bay.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Even fun to sit out at night with a hot cocoa and watch for penguins! :)

The Chocolate Fish Cafe used to be nearby... It may be another eatery now... but I'm unsure if so & what it's called.
