There is nothing between this white sandy beach and the Antarctic. It has New Zealand’s most consistent surf break and a café lined promenade to watch all the action. Cafes and bars line the esplanade, a breath-taking view of the Southern Ocean; surfers enjoying the waves and a newly remodelled playground complete the vista. These restaurants and bars cater 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 Beach is a ten minute drive from the city centre. There are regular public transport services from the city.
