Boasting sandy beaches and a bustling promenade, Oriental Bay represents one of Wellington's most fashionable and desirable neighborhoods. Soak up the lively atmosphere on a leisurely stroll before going for a paddle in the bay's clear blue waters. A much beloved fountain sits off shore, creating an impressive spectacle with its 16 m (52 ft) spray, while a disused wooden barge provides a welcome resting and sunning spot for swimmers. It's a good idea to bring a jacket with you on your visit as the bay can get very windy.
