Tarakena Bay - Wellington, New Zealand

Moa Point Road, Wellington, New Zealand 6022Map
Neighborhood: Eastern Suburbs

Safe swimming and views to the South Island are the main appeal of this small bay close to Wellington's busy airport. Watch the aeroplanes fly overhead and the ferries come and go, to and from the South Island, as you lie in the quiet waters of this small bay. Situated off Chaffers Passage where the Wahine (an inter-island ferry) was blown ashore many years ago. Stroll over to the Wahine memorial when you have had enough of the water.
