Aramoana Beach, Dunedin

(4.7/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Aramoana Beach is a long, white-sand beach split in half by the Mole, a breakwater stretching out into the harbor entrance. Take a walk down the Mole when the waves are crashing in for an exciting stroll, and watch the albatrosses swoop down to the water. A trail and boardwalk pass along tidal slat marshes, leading to a large sandhill at the beach's northern tip. Surfers frequent the rough waters, and families often come with picnics. For Aramoana Beach and beyond, use our Dunedin itinerary builder to get the most from your Dunedin vacation.
