A very pretty beach and surrounding area for a relaxing outing and swim. Take a picnic or visit local cafe, fish 'n chip shop or bakery instead.

Nice beach. Good eateries near by but shopping area lacks a shop to provide things like football, fishing equipment, surf boards so make sure you come prepared.

St. Helier's is where Aucklanders hang around. Very close to city centre and has lots of cafes and restaurants. Come for an afternoon stroll or grab an ice cream and just enjoying sitting on the beach with nice breeze.
