LIVING IN GULF HARBOUR
North of Auckland, New Zealand. This area is also known as The Hibiscus Coast.
This picture-perfect slice of land, is ringed by sheltered sandy beaches. Which means plenty of water activities – swimming, fishing, kayaking, boating, stand up paddle boarding; you name it. The name 'Whangaparāoa' is Māori for "Bay of Whales", and pods of orca and dolphin are regularly spotted in the waters off the peninsula.
Explore the walking tracks at beautiful Shakespear Regional Park at the tip of the peninsula for stunning scenery and views over the Hauraki Gulf. Book one of the barbecues and make a day of it with the family.
If you’d rather do your walking on a golf course, play a round at the world-class golf course at Gulf Harbour Country Club, with more expansive sea views. Relax in the stylish country club after your final putt.
Alternatively catch the local ferry for a day in Auckland -The City of Sails.
