We love coming here in the summer and going for a swim out to the raft.For the younger and braver among us, jumping off the wharf is a highlight. It can get very busy on the weekends and finding a park can be a mission. We also love visiting some of the other bays before you get to Days Bay.

Well worth a visit for the day on the ferry from Wellington, lovely grounds by the café to enjoy a picnic. The wharf makes this a very picturesque destination

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
