The pride and joy of the North Shore - Takapuna Beach sums up everything it means to have a Kiwi summer.
A beautiful view out to Rangitoto island, a deep blue sea and long stretch of white sand make this place a local hotspot.
Only seconds away from the Takapuna shops and ice cream - it is a haven for swimming, walking, sunbathing, socialising or just chilling.

Takapuna is really coming in to it's own now and the beach is the best point of difference. The long stretches of sand are complimented by the warm water, best place to paddle board or wade in for an afternoon cool off. With the abundance of restaurants and bars popping up you can have a dip and then stroll up for a glass of rose -nothing better!
With a whole heap of new local eateries popping up with gorgeous views of the endless ocean that stretches all the way to majestic Rangitoto island, this gorgeous beach stop is on my must-do summer hit list. Strolling casually along its fine white sands is food for the soul and, even though it's just over the Bridge, it's a world away from the frenetic pace of Auckland City. That's why I keep falling head over heels in love for this stretch of sand because every visit is always a shore thing!
