Westshore Beach Reserve Westshore was already a popular seaside resort when the 1931 earthquake reclaimed the Ahuriri lagoon, a long-time popular spot for yachting and boating activities. However, the quake also transformed the previously dangerous and shingly seashore into a safe and sandy swimming beach. Established to promote Napier's attractions, The Thirty Thousand Club was among the ardent enthusiasts pressing for beautification of the beachfront. Newly planted trees and shrubs had to battle poor coastal soils and sparse water supplies to survive. This landscaping and other improvements help make this one of Napier's most popular beaches. Recreational activities include swimming, picnicking and sunbathing, and the reserve includes a children's play area, surf clubs and changing and toilet facilities.
