Karehana Bay at Sunset
Karehana Bay is a northern coastal suburb of Poriruamarker located near the entrance to the Porirua Harbourmarker, to the west of Plimmertonmarker (which it is usually considered a part of). It is about 5 minutes drive to Karehana Bay from the State Highway 1 turnoff to Plimmerton. The suburb looks out towards Mana Island and across Cook Straitmarker to the South Islandmarker.

Karehana Bay is recognised for its recreational values ; a fine sediment beach, an established and popular boating club, and Karehana Bay park. During the 1980's and 1990's the suburb experienced a considerable change in its socioeconomic landscape as many affluent Wellingtonians became aware of the unique natural beauty of the suburb, resulting in many small coastal batches and cottages being replaced with larger family homes and infill housing. Many retired residents still remain in their older batches and cottages, allowing the suburb to retain something of its character. The bay features in the poem by Denis Glover, 'Threnody'
