Days Bay, Wellington

(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Days Bay and other attractions that appeal to you using our Wellington trip itinerary planner.
