I took a Lime scooter along the waterfront trail to St Heilier's Bay and loved it. Easy to get there, lots of cute restaurants (I had breakfast), book shops, vintage/consignment, etc in the town and the beach itself was gorgeous with craggy cliffs, white sand and calm lapping waves. One of my favorite spots that felt like a real getaway inside the city.

Went there over the weekend to enjoy a day of sunshine in winter along the beach.

There's a nice playground for kids and a little 'rock pier' where you can walk out to the water for a gorgeous photo op with Rangitoto Island in the background.

Take the drive up Cliff Road to Archilles Point if you're looking for views of Rangitoto and Browns Island. Also a good setting for a panoramic shot.

A visit to this Wonderful seaside suburb, situated at the far end of Tamaki Drive, 10 kilometres, east of The CBD, is not complete, without -
A walk, not for the faint hearted, to the end of Tamaki Drive and up Cliff Rd, to Achilles Point. Taking, perhaps, 25 minutes, once at The Point, you will be rewarded, with The Most Amazing View, over the Harbour and back towards The City, SkyTower and Harbour Bridge.
Make the effort - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Visitors to the city need to get away from the tourist traps and see some of the gems Auckland has to offer. As a local I can promise there is a wide range of bars and eateries plus just enough boutique shoots to enjoy some retail therapy. Beach is great for a dip and it's pretty easy to get to

Big sky, blue water, green cliffs, a pleasant, undemanding walk along the waterfront ... A beautiful place to visit. We visited on a sunny day, which shows off the area at its best. The steep walk down St Heliers Road is very attractive and offers great views. You can walk back up Long Drive (steep at the bay end, but levels out). There are shops to visit in St Heliers Bay (Post Shop, bookshops, baker's, coffee shops etc) and it's a lovely place to be. It's not overcrowded, not commercialised, not self-conscious - just quietly enjoyable.

St Heliers is about 20 mins from Auckland downtown and has a sort of village feel.

There is a nice selection of shops, including banks, post office etc. There are also some very nice places for breakfast or lunch. It is also situated right on the seafront, so really lovely to spend a day and relax. Free internet too in the local library.

Although it may take in excess of 90 minutes, you can walk along the seafront to the downtown area, or simply catch a bus!
