Fodor's Review

Gonubie Beach is at the mouth of the Gonubie River, about half an hour north east of the city. The riverbank is covered in dense forest, with giant strelitzias (wild banana trees) growing right to the water's edge. A lovely white sandy beach, tidal pools, and a 500-yard-long wooden walkway make this a fantastically user-friendly beach. It's also a good place to watch whales and dolphins, and compared to some of the more central beaches it's pretty quiet. There are picnic tables, fire pits, and a playgroud. Amenities: lifeguard, toilets, showers, food and drink, parking lot. Best for: swimming, walking.
