Dunedin

St Clair Beach

Only minutes from the city centre, this sweeping surf beach is a place to walk, swim, surf or dine out.

Dunedin has many beautiful beaches scattered along its ocean coastline and around the Otago Harbour. Most are only a few minutes drive from the central city.

Saint Clair, the most popular city beach, is a renowned surfing location. A heated salt water outdoor swimming pool, located at the southern end of the long sweeping beach, is open over the summer period.

In 2004 the sea wall was refurbished to provide a modern, wide promenade, with steps leading down to the beautiful sandy beach.

Along the promenade is a choice of restaurants and bars catering for every occasion from a quiet morning coffee while you gaze to the horizon, to a lively night out in a fantastic seaside setting.

Saint Clair, like most city seaside suburbs, has always been a wealthy area. Many fine historic homes can be seen along the waterfront or on the wooded slopes of Forbury Hill.

Saint Clair Beach is a ten minute drive from the city centre. There are regular public transport services from the city.
