Things to do: shopping, nightlife, adventure
Takapuna is a central, coastal suburb of North Shore City, located in the northern North Island of New Zealand, at the beginning of a south-east-facing peninsula forming the northern side of the Waitemata Harbour. While very small in terms of population, it was the seat of the North Shore City Council before the amalgamation of Auckland in 2010 and contains substantial shopping and entertainment areas, being considered the CBD of North Shore City.The population of the census area of "Takapuna Central" was 2,811 in the 2006 Census, an increase of 291 from 2001. The census area does not include some streets to the west of the CBD which are often considered as part of Takapuna.GeographyTakapuna is located on the isthmus of a peninsula which extends south into the northern waters of the Waitemata at the harbour's eastern end. As such, the suburb has a coastline on Shoal Bay, an arm of the Waitemata to the southwest, as well as having a coast on the Hauraki Gulf to the northeast. The northern end of the suburb is dominated by the large volcanic crater of Lake Pupuke. Some points in Takapuna are less than 500 metres from all three of these bodies of water. The Hauraki coastline includes a kilometer long crescent shaped beach (Takapuna Beach) which is a popular recreation area for the local area.To the southeast of Takapuna lies the six-kilometre-long peninsula which contains the suburbs of Belmont and Devonport. To the west lie the suburbs of Hillcrest and Northcote. The suburb of Milford lies to the north, on the far shore of Lake Pupuke.
