One of Auckland’s most beautiful and affluent suburbs, St Heliers is a vibrant beachfront promenade lined with great shops and eateries. The picturesque beach is a great spot to soak up the views across the harbour and take a dip, or enjoy a stroll along the waterfront.
Set your sights
Take the gentle walk up to Achilles Point for spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf and islands from the viewing platform and see the Māori carvings.
Chill out over hot coffee
Sit back with a superb coffee or enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the cafés or restaurants, with great beach views and a relaxed atmosphere.
Make like a local and tuck into fresh fish and chips or a delicious gelato on the beach. Pick up a tasty pastry from the bakery and choose a spot on the sand.
Take a walk
Enjoy a family walk, cycle or rollerblade along the promenade. Young kids will love the beachside playground too.
Swim in the sheltered bay or take the little ones for a splash in the waves. On a windy day, try your hand at kite-surfing.
St Heliers has retained its original seaside charm and friendly community spirit. There are plenty of cafés, restaurants and bars to choose from, as well as boutique shops selling gifts, homewares and fashion.
