Campbell’s Bay is a great beach for surfing, swimming
and having fun in the sun.
Campbell’s Bay is immediately south of the headland in Kakanui and provides a surfable break and a safe swimming beach which is frequented by Hector’s Dolphins who love to play in the surf. They will often be seen playing in the waves and can be spotted right along the Kakanui coastline.
There are occasional leopard seal sightings as well. They are large and pale-coloured and can be fairly aggressive. So if you see one, keep your distance!
The beach is around 2km long and the Southern end is known as All Day Bay and provides a more sheltered spot.
Just 10 minutes south of Oamaru via Beach Road.
Public toilets available.
