Plimmerton beach is one of my favourite beaches. I played and swum here as a child and I have lived for more than 20 years in a nearby suburb.
It has a lovely large sandy bay with very safe swimming.
And on some of the sea walls there are quotes from Shakespeare made from old pieces of brick that have washed up on this beach.
Read about those here, here and here.
It also has rocky areas mixed with sand.
It has views across the opening of the Porirua harbour to Whitireia Park.
And around in the next bay there are wee sandy coves and lots of rocks with rock pools to search in.
What a gorgeous and varied piece of the coast this is. Aren’t we lucky to have such a close relationship with a special beach?
It is a lovely stretch of coastline Juliet. We are very fortunate to have a beach we can thoroughly enjoy on our doorsteps.
How glorious is that?
It is a wonderful place to visit.
So very beautiful. I also like the places to search for rocks.
I will have to go and visit some of our other beaches to share on my blog.
Wondeful photos- all of them. I am learning about your country. I also like rocks.
Thanks for reading along. New Zealand is a most interesting place:-)
Thank for your photo’s. Indeed its very beautiful. When i’m at the beach I search also for rocks. And shells ofcourse, and pieces of glass.
Do you collect seaglass?
Thank you for your comments. I don’t collect seaglass but there is always a lot on the beach and I know many people do collect it. I often pick up rubbish off the beach and put it in the rubbish tin or recycling bin.
I love those Wellington beaches
Thanks we certainly have some stunning beaches here and quite a variety of beaches to enjoy.
It is a beautiful beach. So much to offer and so many wonderful memories to share. The clear waters where the tiny shells are just took me back to a moment of happiness and adventure. Have a great day.
Thanks for reading my blog and leaving some comments:-) I’m glad my post bought you enjoyment….nature is good at providing that for us when we look.
