This beach is 20 kilometres, or about a half hour drive from the capital, Wellington. We choose a nice sunny afternoon to take the very windy road north west to go for a walk and look at the rocks. Taking a short walk just around Ohariu Bay. Walking along the bay, this is looking north, there’s not really a sandy beach as it’s mainly rocks but there was a lot of fishermen. There’s also a lot of wind turbines as it’s a really isolated area. There are not any shops or houses but it’s a lovely spot to go for a short drive from Wellington.
