Overview

Cornwallis Beach has been inhabited for centuries, as evidenced by extensive shell middens. Settled by Europeans in the early 1840s, Cornwallis and the surrounding area became important kauri milling areas. Today, Cornwallis Beach is popular for bathing at high tide and is a great spot for picnics and fishing from the old pier that juts out some 200 meters into the Manukau Harbour. Windsurfers also get some great rides around these waters. The beach opens daily at 7:30 a.m.
