The iconic little Auckland beach, backed by a streetfront of bars, cafes and restaurants. The water quality is almost always good, the waves are tiny and safe for the little ones, and in summer there are always lots of babes of both sexes on view. Kohimarama, St. Heliers and Okahu Bay are nearby and also good but quieter options, and the parking is usually easier too. 40 minutes drive.

The most recent of the Auckland developments, this is a nice area of bars, cafes, restaurants and upmarket shops, with a kids play area (with fountains) and beanbags in the middle. Very central, and right by the main train station. 30 minutes drive.

This has JUST changed hands, and we haven't tried it yet. It is now called 'Marmaris', which suggests it has a Turkish / Mediterranean theme. Do let us know what it is like. It is a 1 minute drive from the house (you could walk, but the way Kiwis drive, it would be a bit scary!).

This has just changed hands. It is now called 'The Olive', and serves nice Turkish / Mediterranean food. It is a 1 minute drive from the house, and a five minute walk if you make sure you are safe on the windy road with torches, and the reflective strips we keep in the shoe cupboard.

World famous as a surf beach, it's also awesome for body-boarding, and for just wandering along, taking in the natural beauty, year round. Karekare, Bethel's and Muriwai beaches and also well worth taking in. 20 minutes drive.

In my view, North Head and nearby Mt. Victoria offer the best viewpoints in Auckland. Bring a picnic rug, some food and drink, and just sit and watch the boats pass by down below from this elevated lookout. It does mean a trip over the harbour bridge, or a ferry ride to Devonport, but on a calm and sunny day, it is unbeatable. 40 minutes drive.

This used to be red-light central, and still has its edgy vibe, but it is also a cool little strip to hang out, drink, dance, and is welcoming of all sexualities. 30 minutes drive.
