Breaker Bay


Breaker Bay

Breaker Bay is a suburb on the south east coast of Wellington City in New Zealand, on the Miramar Peninsula.[1] The suburb contains a 600 m wide bay of the same name,[2] and is part of the western shore of the Wellington Harbour entrance. The Eastern Walkway runs along the top of the Bay and has views of the area.

It is mostly well known for being the location of Wellington's only clothing optional beach, which is shared by naturists and clothed people alike. Families tend to congregate at the end nearest to the road and pass the hole in the rock (to the middle of the beach).

Breaker Bay is served by a commuter bus (No 30) running on weekdays to the city in the mornings and to the beach in the afternoons.
