One of Wellington’s most popular beach, the Oriental Bay is a nice little beach where you can head over for a swim, some sunbathing, maybe a game of volleyball and a jog along Oriental Parade. There is a walkway along the beach. You will find many joggers here in the early morning and in the evening. There is a kids’ playground near the beach along with seats for visitors. Definitely a must visit for a leisurely stroll in the evening. A highlight of the beach is the Carter Memorial fountain.
