Papanui Beach on the Otago Peninsula is an exposed beach and point break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest with some shelter here from west winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the east southeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Hazards include sharks and rocks.
