“The Walk to Caroline Bay Beach worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

The start of the walk is just outside the door and worth it. The lighthouse on the way has an interesting story attached and the walk along the beach is well maintained and pleasant.

liked it all - mostly walking around with friends, went to the market, then walked through the rose garden, then over to the beach

The back drop to the beach is very nicely developed with interesting walk- ways from town to beach.

“Amazing makeover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Wow! Had a stunning day at the newly made over beach. Well worth the visit for a picnic or just to hang out. Fantastic board walk and sand dune rehabilitation has done wonders. This is probably the best place in Timaru to visit on a sunny day!
