Dunedin Beach, Dunedin

(4.5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Dunedin vacation route planner, you can arrange your visit to Dunedin Beach and other attractions in Dunedin.

  • Very beautiful and impressive, which beat over waves with the corresponding sound. Was all along jogging - the beach twice here at the end to the Wright viewpoint. The sand is a bit too soft for this (but of course ideal for walking). In the morning, the tourists who have stayed on the dune in the parking lot stretch here. A lot of people run their dogs here too. It has me very well here.
