Join the locals jumping off the wharf in Days Bay and take a dip in the clear harbour water. This summer rite of passage is now seen all year round. To keep the beach day going, hire a kayak or cruise the bay on pedal power along the village waterfront or simply let the water lap at your feet.
Wainuiomata, McKenzie Baths and Eastbourne Summer Pools are open from November for the summer. Pack a picnic with locally made goodies and don't miss the 80m open air waterslide through native bush at Wainuiomata.
Head to famous Zany Zeus for one of their delicious handcrafted organic ice-creams. While you're there, pick up your cheese and milk for the week. If you are looking for that caffeine hit, instead of an iced coffee, ask for an affogato - a scoop of vanilla gelato drowned with a shot of hot espresso. Yum!
On your way home, stop by the supermarket and pick up a box of iceblocks to share. Take your time in the frozen goods section to enjoy the cold blast.
Max, Isaac, James and friends feeling a little small next to the waterfall at Percy Scenic Reserve - just a short walk from the car park off SH2 but feeling like a world away. Best time to go is when the sun is out after a rainy day! #lovethehutt #huttvalley #wellington #waterfall #walks #purenewzealand
