Beaches & harbour

Porirua City’s beaches and harbours are an integral part of who we are. We love swimming at Pukerua Bay, snorkelling at Shelly Bay, surfing waves at Titahi Bay, windsurfing in Plimmerton, sailing at Karehana Bay, and idly watching the tide roll out of the Pāuatahanui Inlet.


Join us for a day at the beach – we have seven to choose from here in Porirua City. Take your pick.
