Days Bay, Wellington

4.6
#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. Put Days Bay into our Wellington trip itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Wellington.

  • 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.

  • The Ferry trip from Queens Warf is very cute. Days Bay, very quiet, sea, beach, small restaurants, very cute!

  • We swung by from Lower Hut one evening thinking the place would be live with a beach culture but how wrong we were. The places was almost deserted and hardly anywhere was open.  more »
