Takapuna Tours

Takapuna
Just 15 minutes from the center of Auckland, Takapuna is Auckland’s trendy, bustling, and boutique beach town. Though the town itself in relatively small in terms of population, Takapuna is considered the center of Auckland’s North Shore suburbs, and is best known for its white sand beach with views of Rangitoto Island. Hire a paddleboard, sailboat, or jet ski to cruise the scenic coastline, where conditions are calmer and waves are much smaller than the beaches of western Auckland. To explore the rolling coastline on foot, take a stroll on the coastal walkway that leads to Milford Beach, where the view looks back at the Auckland skyline and shimmering Lake Pupuke. When you work up an appetite from hiking or swimming, restaurants and shops are within walking distance of Takapuna Beach, where trendy locals sip their coffee on the curb of street side cafés, and savvy shoppers browse the boutiques for the latest selection of styles.

Insider's Tip: To experience Takapuna like an Auckland local, visit the market on Sunday mornings to peruse the produce and crafts.

Practical Info

Takapuna can be easily accessed by public transportation. Because of its laid back, small town feel, it's a convenient base for travelers who want to experience Auckland city by day but feel like they're staying on the coast.
