Kamahi Road, Oban

Bathing Beach is a popular and sheltered swimming area within Halfmoon Bay at Stewart Island. Only a short walk from the township of Oban, this stunning sandy beach is the perfect place to relax and listen to birdsong while taking in the spectacular views - and to take a dip in the pristine water! At low tide you can walk the entire length of the curved beach, but it is divided in half at high tide by a rocky headland.

The adjacent Mill Creek estuary is an interesting place to explore at low tide, with remnants of timber from early milling days still visible along the creek edge.
