Eastbourne is a seaside village destination facing the Northwest on the coast of Wellington harbour where it catches the best of the day's sun. There is excellent accommodation available in quality homes as well as hosted stays in either homestay or bed & breakfast format.
Eastbourne is easy to get to, either driving around the harbour (25 minutes) or catching the bus (1 hour) or catching the very comfortable East by West Ferry (20 minutes). There is something for everyone, a small village with cafe's, art galleries, antiques, food and groceries, plus Wellingtons best beaches, Days Bay, Eastbourne and Muritai, walking trails through historic native bush with many native birds or a safe walk/cycle along a wild coast to the harbour mouth. Facilities include a Yacht club, Swimming pool, Public toilets, Bars, Library, New Children's playground and multiple tennis clubs There is also a Library and bookstore for those wet cold days.
Locals are very friendly, being part of a small village where most people know each other. Great for a weekend getaway from your apartment in the city.
