Framed by the Eastbourne coastline, the harbor heads and Wellington city this long safe swimming beach is a popular spot in the summer months. From the western end you can watch the water-skiers as they whirl around, walk to the wooden wharf popular with fishermen (and women), and picnic in the picnic area (barbecues provided). As you pass along the beach to the eastern end where the children's play area and miniature railway are situated, pause for a moment at the Settlers Museum for a little bit of history.
