Description: 

Breaker Bay is a right hand point break on a very rocky beach. It has gnarly, hollow drop in, with a fast, powerful wave offering a good barrel section or two. Watchout for the rocks, as it can get shallow at times. Can be crowded when its on. Waves feathering on the outer rock can indicate a set on its way in. Expert surfers only.

Directions: 
From Wellington City, head south east on State Highway 1. Continue past Wellington Airport onto Stewart Duff Drive, then turn left onto Moa Point Road. Continue round the end of the peninsula, past Wahine Memorial Park. The road will change to Breaker Bay Road, and you will find Breaker Bay a little further along. Find a park at Breaker Bay. (The signs may also call it Flax Bay)
