We visited st kilda beach and thoroughly enjoyed Marlow Park with our two small children. The dinosaur slide was the highlight but there were also various play structures, swings, see saws and a whale to climb on. The cycle track looked great for older kids

I think they refer to St Clair and St Kilda beaches. Regardless, this is the point for surfers in Dunedin. Its promenade is short, but impressive. Only few restaurants close by. Despite the cold water, it has an amazing view.

Beautiful white sand and crashing waves with lovely views. St Clair has lovely cafes which are a great place to head for a coffee with great views. Very relaxing place to visit but the water is very crispy and best left for the brave.

Stunner if you like the beach. Surf is up most of the time and it is good walking along the beach. You can watch surfers ride the waves. At any of the cafes or bars on the water front are delightful.
