Orewa Beach, Orewa

(4.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Relax, play, and explore at Orewa Beach, a 1.9 mi (3 km) stretch of sandy coastline just 20 minutes from the city of Auckland. Try out a range of water sports--from kite surfing to kayaking--in the patrolled and demarcated waters. A large playground will keep children busy for hours, and surrounding cafes and restaurants offer extensive views of the water and expanse of coast. Cycle or walk along the local paths to further explore the area around the beach, or simply lie down on the golden sand to relax and enjoy.
