New Brighton Travel Guide: 39 reviews and 96 photos


We only spent a short while exploring New Brighton and the weather was anything but good, but a couple of times the sky cleared for a few minutes, and we could see the beach must be great when it's nice. There were still crowds of people there, and surfers too, surfing right at some of the pole supports of the bridge.
Hey, maybe they could go in and out them, like driving around witches hats!

Part of the restaurant/cafe building near the pier.

The toddlers pool a little further down the beach from the pier.
