Orewa Beach is a 3-kilometre stretch of golden sand just 20 minutes north of Auckland’s harbour bridge. Go kayaking, windsurfing or swimming, and take the kids on the cool playground. Grab an ice cream or settle in for lunch at one of the cafés across the road.
Take a scenic drive to the Pohutukawa Coast for beautiful white-sand beaches, expansive regional parks and family-friendly activities. Check out Maraetai, with safe swimming and spectacular views, and nearby Beachlands or Omana.
