07Oct18. Not a review for the playground but for the whole beach area. Lots there. The tide was mostly in this time. If this is the same beach we went to before, the tide goes out a long way and the beach is enormous.
We stopped over for the toilets and then lunch.
A sprawler of a playground in a long, thin area that follows the sand dunes behind Tahunanui Beach. There are better playgrounds in NZ. But in tandem with it being such a killer location, this playground gets a top score. The big plus is there’s heaps of other things do for young and old. From Nature-land Zoo to Bumper Cars, Go Karts and Water Slide (to name a few). Or just sit on the beach to watch the kite surfers punt some air (I don’t know how there aren’t more collisions) and the sunbathing locals getting fried by Nelsons’ sizzling sun.
