Vehicles on Titahi Bay Beach

After a review of our Transport Bylaw in late 2021, vehicles are no longer allowed on Titahi Bay Beach, other than for launching boats or unloading items at a boatshed. This decision was made to improve safety for all beach users.

To help make sure these restrictions are followed, from 7 March 2022 the beach gates will be kept locked – with access made available to boatshed owners and boaties.
