This has been a popular seaside town since the 1920s when holidaymakers from Wellington would train out to Porirua station then catch the coach to the sea. Over the years nothing much has changed and the beach remains a draw card for sea sport lovers. A number of clubs operate from the bay including surf lifesaving, board riders, a fishermen's club and a diving school. Plenty of parking, safe swimming is also available.

the middle, divers, swimmers and small boats, this lovely bay is ideal for all ages. It has inspired artwork ...

Scorching Bay is one of Wellington's loveliest beaches. Safe swimming, golden sands, grassy picnic areas, ample parking, changing sheds and
