Only 30 kilometres North of Auckland is the beautiful and rugged Bethells Beach - a perfect illustration of the untouched beauty of New Zealand.
Rich with history, this secluded spot is a mecca for activities, including; surfing, parasailing, hang gliding, fishing, and tramping.
A favourite with Auckland locals, the proximity makes Bethells Beach an ideal escape from the hustle and pace of the metropolis for something more serene.

I love this beach. It’s wild and desolate and typifies a west coast beach. I enjoy the walk from the car park to the beach and always feel invigorated by a plunge in the rough and ready ocean. Not a great each for little ones but the estuary is fun for kinds to play in and much safer. If you’re here on a Friday night or over the weekend pop into the Bethells Caravan for a delicious vege or beef burger and a nice block. Anna and Jim who run this food truck are a lovely couple and the food is great.
