This beach happens to be my all-time favorite beach to go to. Every time I go here I usually see windsurfers out on the waters, people walking their dogs, kids on the playground and beautiful beachside houses along the beach. There are swings along the...More

Takapuna Beach is great for families as there is a great playground in the reserve behind the beach plus it is close to shops. Parking is a challenge though. A level sandy beach with lots of activity going on.

I love this beach. The light is gorgeous and it's easily accessible just over the bridge from Auckland. There are all sorts of water activities throughout the week, a great children's playground, a grassy beach-front reserve and dining and watering holes just over the road...More
