Mandalay Beach takes its name from the Norwegian barque Mandalay wrecked there in 1911. Mandalay Beach is popular with anglers, but even if you do not fish, its worth the visit for the spectacular views of the Southern Ocean and of Chatham Island, which looms out of the water 3 kilometres offshore.

On-site interpretation and extracts from the Captains Log tell you more about the wreck of the Mandalay.

Directions: Turn onto Mandalay Beach Road, 12 km west of Walpole
