Fodor's Review

This black-sand strand beside the busy container wharves and sheds of Port Taranaki is not the most picturesque of beaches; nevertheless, it's good for families, as the swimming is safe and there's a playground. There's also lots of history here involving early Māori and European altercations. Belt Road Seaside Holiday Park (tent and campervan sites, cabins, and motel studios) is close by, as are the cafés of Port Taranaki. Regular beach events include kids' triathlons, open-water swims, and Sunday markets. Amenities: parking (free); toilets. Best for: surfing; swimming; walking.
