About Sandfly Bay

Dunedin’s southern beaches shelter some of the best beachbreaks in the country. Flat days are rare but strong rips and heavy storms are a common occurence. Sandfly Bay requires a long hike over sandhills down to an average beachie, best on small swell at low tide.

It’s also a Yellow Eye Penguin reserve and neighboring Boulder Beach is now closed to surfing as there are penguins nesting there.
