#1 of 10 in Things to do in Timaru
Amble along Caroline Bay Beach, where a boardwalk cuts across the dunes to keep the sand out of your shoes, or take a dip in the calm, sheltered waters. Look for the park behind the beach, featuring sculptures and a bubbling fountain. A playground and skate park will keep the children entertained, and visitors of all ages may enjoy a round of mini golf. If you work up an appetite, you can find a bite to eat at one of many nearby cafes and restaurants. To visit Caroline Bay Beach on your trip to Timaru, use our Timaru vacation builder.
