Beach
“The beach has reasonable size parking area, nice golden sand, a good grassy reserve area and small cafe located behind the beach. Scorching is a safe location for swimmers and limited swells and generally if there is a wave, conditions wouldn't be pleasant. The area has good rock fishing locations that are easily accessible and therefore the beach is popular year round.”

Sentiers de randonnée

Nature Preserve
“We have some excellent hiking trails right on our doorstep that wind through the regenerating native bush in Polhill Reserve. The entry point is only 3 minutes away from the bottom end of Karepa Street. The Polhill Reserve loop is suitable for those of average fitness and takes from 45 minutes to a couple of hours, depending on your fitness level. There are plenty of shorter walks you can take if you want something easier: 2 suggestions: Head down to Aro Street (around 30 minutes) for refreshments including craft beer (Garage Project), coffee, or bread or pastries (Arobake), or alternatively walk up to the Brooklyn Wind Turbine for stunning panoramic views of Wellington. ”

Trail
“There are bike and walking tracks alongside the River from Petone at the South end heading northwards to Upper Hutt; if you cross the road and/or rail pedestrian bridges you can walk a loop track and park your car at various entry/exit points. Walking by Shandon Golf course is pleasant and the track is fairly flat, apart from the gradual gradient as you ride north up the valley.”

“There is a great website which explains this lovely hike that takes you from the city to our bay. Requires some level of fitness and allow 6 or 7 hours. Begin the hike by taking the bus into town. Please disregard the title which says it is in Kingston. It actually begins near Parliament. Best done November thru March.”

“There is Limited access to vehicles on this gravelled road so it is good for walking or cycling beside the harbour. It is only a short walking distance from the final bus stop on the Eastbourne route, and you can hire a bike to use at the bike shed on the way to Burdan Gate, the starting point.”
