Allans Beach

Allans Beach

As a rule, beaches are at their best with blue skies and sunshine. But this can be a bit hit and miss around the Otago Peninsula, as with our visit to Allans Beach. But the grey low cloud did add drama, plus the interesting cliffs, wind blown surf, sea lions, and even a solitary fur seal. Also, spot the artistic endeavour with the kelp!⁠

To get to Allans Beach, take Hoopers Inlet Road from Sandymount Road all the way round the far side of the inlet, then follow Allans Beach Rd to the end. It’s a short walk across a field then through dune grass to the beach.⁠

This beach is one of the more remote options on the peninsula, while still easily accessible from the carpark.⁠
