Aramoana Beach, Dunedin

4.7
#1 of 10 in Beaches in Otago Region
Aramoana Beach is a long, white-sand beach split in half by the Mole, a breakwater stretching out into the harbor entrance. Take a walk down the Mole when the waves are crashing in for an exciting stroll, and watch the albatrosses swoop down to the water. A trail and boardwalk pass along tidal slat marshes, leading to a large sandhill at the beach's northern tip. Surfers frequent the rough waters, and families often come with picnics.
