Relaxing in New Brighton

Relaxing In New Brighton

We all need a little time to take a breath and recharge. Being away from the city, New Brighton offers a slightly slower, more relaxing pace and some great options to charge those batteries back up.

He Puna Taimoana

With stunning views overlooking the Pacific, He Puna Taimoana is a great spot to let the world pass by. With five heated pools, you can come and soak your troubles away any time of year. There’s plenty for the kids to enjoy and even a lovely café just next door. They also have special sessions, which are worth checking out.

Spas and Beauty Therapy

Sometimes, we all need a little ‘me’ time, whether it’s a deep-tissue massage, a mani-pedi or just a spruce up with some new nails.

Beautiful Sunrises and Sunsets

Nothing quite beats a great sunrise or sunset. With two bodies of water on either side of New Brighton, you have the rare chance of seeing the sun come up over the ocean, then later on, set with the amazing view across the Ihutai Avon/Heathcote Estuary. It’s something us locals swear by as incredibly therapeutic.

Relaxing Walks

Perfect for clearing the cobwebs or just for the joy of being outside, New Brighton has plenty of casual walkways around. A wander down the beach, a stroll through Southshore Spit Reserve, or a meander in the community garden – we’ve got several lovely spots to put your mind at ease.
