“Okay but crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Everyone raves about this beach. I found it to be only sort of average. No real breath taking views and the part I was at my town was quite busy and crowded. The one good thing is that they do have lifeguards to make swimming with children safer and easier. Most of the beach looked like good swimming as well.

“Fabulous beach with awesome views.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Have walked up n down this beach many times. Always end up finding something to take home with me. Fabulous beach with awesome views. On a clear day you can see White Island, some days puffing smoke others just sitting on the horizon. Worth going for a walk over the hill at West End to Otarawairere, hot n steep but gorgeous beach on other side.
