Travel around the coastal road of Eastern Hutt to Days Bay & discover the quiet quaint settlement of Days Bay. Set amongst some of the most beautiful bush settings in Wellington, this recreation park, & cafeteria pavillion has been around for generations and cotinues to attract visitors to its relaxed surroundings. Take a walk along the beach front or through... More

Recently went to lunch in Days Bay. Wellington put on a perfect Sunny and not too windy day. A must do if you you are in Wellington.

Such a quaint beautiful location to relax, pop into the local store for a pizza or ice cream, buy duck food to feed the ducks behind the store & plenty of easy bush walks just behind it too

A quick drive down here exploring the sights which was well worth the visit. We stopped off at the day's bay pavilion for lunch. After a walk along the bay amazing for picnics and a spot of swimming

This is a nice bay to visit if you want to try something a bit more secluded when in Wellington. I think you can get the ferry over but we always drive via petone. Nice walking area with a good coffee shop and little park for the kids.

Definitely a place many people go on a good sunny day to soak up the rays and to have a dip in the sea. The best way to enjoy this is on a sunny Wellington day with a group of friends, bring your BBQ etc and enjoy an afternoon/evening picnic. There is plenty of field space for the younger ones...
