Take a running jump from the pier at Days Bay, a pretty beach spot sought out for its swimming and diving opportunities. Laze away on the beach or swim out to the floating raft. Cool down with a sweet treat from one of the popular ice cream shops, or fill up at a cafe or pizza parlor. Cruise through the galleries and eclectic art shops that surround the wharf to pick up locally sourced, handmade New Zealand crafts as unique souvenirs.
