Dunedin Beach, Dunedin

4.5
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Otago Region
If you visit Dunedin Beach in the summer, expect to enjoy the views and watch surfers ride the waves. Big, crashing crests are common on this beach, so children and weak swimmers are advised to stay out of the water. Instead, look for a swimming pool at the end of the sandy shoreline. In the winter, however, the water gets too cold for swimming and chilly winds keep sunbathers away.
