Days Bay, Wellington

4.2
#3 of 15 in Beaches in Wellington
Take a running jump from the pier at Days Bay, a pretty beach spot sought out for its swimming and diving opportunities. Laze away on the beach or swim out to the floating raft. Cool down with a sweet treat from one of the popular ice cream shops, or fill up at a cafe or pizza parlor. Cruise through the galleries and eclectic art shops that surround the wharf to pick up locally sourced, handmade New Zealand crafts as unique souvenirs.

  • Not a lot to see unless you like to walk into the forests but a bus will take you into Eastbourne for $2 each way or you can walk  more »
  • My husband and I made a day of it...walking along the beach, getting an ice-cream and lunch at the Days Bay Pavilion- We highly recommend the burgers  more »
  • From the pictures we had this not expected, but the beach is located right on the road. Not very convenient with children. But good. If you look on the sea side, it is really a nice beach with small waves and it's nice to have the ferry to see off and on.
