“Just been for a run on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Just been for a run on the beach - great. Long stretch for miles and miles and miles - didn't run that far though ! Can get a little nippy at times.

“beach & mountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Incredible views being on the beach and able to see snow covered mountains. Seemed to be a friendly dog beach. We were able to get the public bus from Christchurch (North Shore bus) and got off near the coffee shop. We then had a lovely walk along the beach to New Brighton Pier.

“Best beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This beach at the north end of Christchurch pegasus bay, is a wonderful beach. From Waimairi beach walking north is very dog friendly. In the weekends always good to see so many dogs and owners enjoying this free space.

Need to stretch your legs, enjoy the sea, views of the mountains and Port Hills, then this is a must. A great coffee shop near the play area.

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Unpopulated, close to Bottle Lake forest, large beach. Take a long sleeve layer as easterly wind can be cool.
