Pilot Bay beach is fenced off this morning.
A reporter at the beach says contractors are putting sand back on the beach as much of it has been eroded away.
"The fenced area extends from the north end of the carpark at Salisbury Wharf to the carpark opposite Pacific Ave.
"There is traffic management in place for the Salisbury Wharf carpark."
A Tauranga City Council spokesperson says Pilot Bay is being re-nourished with sand.
"Part of the beach is blocked off today and tomorrow.
"There is still access to the water and people are welcome to swim."
