Bathing Beach

South Island, New Zealand

This short walk takes you along both road and track, both sometimes steep. Bathing Beach is a popular and sheltered swimming area with a white-sand beach – great for kids. The adjacent Mill Creek estuary is an interesting place to explore at low-tide, with remnants of timber from early milling days still visible along the creek edge. This track is maintained by the Southland District Council.


30 min return from the Rakiura National Park Visitor Centre

Getting there:

Turn left at the Halfmoon Bay waterfront. Walk past the general store and turn right just as you start to climb the hill into Kamahi Road and follow this around until reaching the Bathing Beach signpost.
