Along with Days Bay this is a lovely seaside hamlet that you can get to by ferry from Wellington via Days Bay. Great views back to the city, a perfect day out if the weather is good.

Such a quaint drive around the bays to find a little seaside paradise. Great place to take the little kids, with long walkways for trikes and bikes.

You prob won't want to go sunbathing here but it's still pleasant enough for a walk with the family for a few hours. Nice views back towards wellington.

Avoid sunny days during the weekend as this is a very popular beach resulting in overcrowded sand, water and few car parks. The views looking towards wellington city are wonderful and even better at night looking at the city lights.You can catch a ferry from wellington to days bay. Rona gallery is worth a visit to view local art.

Especially Eastbourne, albeit that the local businesses seem to be in the land of nod. Apart from a hard working fish n chip shop( which could do with a good clean) the rest of the place is certainly languid Having said that the beach is superb ......

was there last weekend ... was told there is a Wahine memorial there (the mast), so made a beeline for that as it was an epic storm which created such sadness in NZ History. Great to see this memorial here and its simply done which shows class. Well done Eastbourne.

Some people prefer a pebbled beach and for those that do you will find a well kept clean beach with lots to do along its promenade complete with bandstand and one of the finest victorian piers in the country. Excellent value from the seafood stall next to the pier on the eastern side, with decent coffee and good service. Eastbourne... More

Loved the seafront and the stroll along the prom. Beach is well kept and on the hot sunny day that I went it was very busy and a delight to see people enjoying themselves. The pier is nice but being spoilt by my home town having three ;-) its just another seaside pier. It is well kept and in better... More

On our last day on NZ we strolled along Eastbourne & Days Bay beaches. With great views across the bay we picked up lots of shells and enjoyed the sunshine. Whilst there we looked how locals dived for Paua shells. Afterwards we enjoyed lunch at the Days Bay Pavillion overlooking the bay.
