Victory Beach

by Insiders Dunedin

Walk to Victory Beach, Otago Peninsula at low tide to see the remains of the grounded ship "Victory". This pristine and completely undeveloped beach is named after the SS Victory ship that sunk of its shores in 1861. It is also home to sea lions, fur seals, blue and yellow-eyed penguins.

At 3.5 kilometres, Victory Beach is the longest beach on Otago Peninsula. It is located alongside the Papanui Inlet and surrounded by sand dunes.

Victory Beach is located 24 kilometres by road from Dunedin CBD. Access is via a gravel road from Portobello. At the end of the road a 2 kilometre walkway leads you past the Pyramids.
