Awesome beach that goes on for miles, must be one of New Zealand's best. A wide stretch of clean, soft golden sand as far as the eyes can see.

Beautiful white sand and shells, the water is clear and amazing to swim in. It has this family atmosphere and there were people flying kites, walking dogs, so fun!

Only there for a short time as we were doing a day trip from Dawn Princess cruise ship. Beautiful beach, sheltered and clean. Lots of lovely eating spots along the beachfront.

This beach is one of the best in New Zealand. Lovely soft sand and lots of places to eat across the road. Found the beach very clean and rather empty which was nice as too many tourists could spoil it. Well worth a visit and could spend a few days here relaxing.

It's a beautiful beach that stretches for miles and miles! It hasn't been corrupted by commercialism and is just a wonderful place!

What with a beach on each side on the peninsula you are guaranteed to be out of the wind, get a sunrise or a sunset. The beaches are clean, even for a port beach I.e. Pilot bay. The ocean beach goes on and on and the views are fabulous as they include islands too. A beach for everyone!

sunny good sand and often rather empty on a still day is great beware the wind direction and check its blowing off shore if windy to avoid sand storms!

Seldom does one come across a beach with such a long level clean sandy beach. Smoothed out over night by council one can step onto an unmarked beach in the early morning. The slope into the sea is gentle as are the waves (unless it is a windy day). On a clear calm day the sea is like a pond.
