Point Chevalier Beach is one of the best beaches on the Waitemata harbour and certainly the best west of the city. With its safe swimming, ample shade and the excellent playground in adjacent Colye Park, it makes a great inner city outing for the family.
The beach is well sanded and offers good swimming near high tide. The best place to put down a blanket is at the southern end, where there is a flat grassy area with plenty of shade. It is quite a walk from the carpark, so it's best to park along Harbour View Rd and take one of the paths down to the beach.

We love going to Pt Chev beach to watch the sun set. The beach is facing in just the right direction to have a beautiful view of the sun as it sinks into the horizon. You can take a picnic with you, or your dog(s) for a walk. Or just chill out on the sand and watch the colors in the sky change - it's magical! And so close to central Auckland!
