Located on Auckland's North Shore is the glorious Takapuna Beach. It's a beautiful beach with golden sand that's just a short walk from the main road.

When you're at Takapuna Beach, you'll have excellent views of the Waitemata Harbour and Rangitoto Island.

Takapuna Beach is great on a sunny day and will offer you the perfect opportunity to go for a swim in the water so you'll be able to catch some sun, sand and surf.

You can go with your friends, or it would make the ideal setting for a first date. No matter who you go to Takapuna Beach with, you'll have a truly fantastic time and there will be a raft of brilliant photo opportunities for you to share with friends and family.

Takapuna Beach is just a short bus trip over the Auckland Harbour Bridge or you could drive there if you'd like. It will take about 20 minutes.
