17th New Zealand Pub Night !

Hi everyone, I’m back from my little road trip and this means that I finally can organise the first Pub Night of the year !

So even if we are not so many in town at the moment it would be great if we could see each of you on Thursday night.

The Rakino’s will once more be our starting base and then we’ll move on to Cassette or somewhere else if you have good ideas.

So see you on Thursday night at 7:00PM !

Cheers, Robin

Beaches in Auckland

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great Christmas and that the new year begins well for you. I came back from holiday so I’ll be more active on the blog than the last weeks.

Unfortunately I can’t organise a Pub Night this week because I won’t be there again but next week you can reserve your Thursday night.

After those last weeks of rain and storm it seems that finally the real summer’s here so it’s time to discover the best beaches in Auckland and in the near areas.

North Shore

Takapuna Beach
Takapuna is a very popular beach close to the business area with good parking and a large boat ramp. There are toilets and a changing block, as well as a picnic area. On a clear day enjoy great views of the volcanic island of Rangitoto and other Hauraki Gulf islands.

Milford Beach
Milford Beach is a popular family beach with a large grassed area and areas for beach volleyball. It has a children’s playground and a toilet block. It is also home to a marina, sea scouts and the Milford Cruising Club. There is a boat ramp and parking off Milford Road.

Thorne Bay

Thorne Bay is a spot favored by young people and is situated between Takapuna Beach and Milford Beach. It is only accessible by foot.

Auckland City

Mission Bay – Kohimarama – St Heliers

Situated East of Auckland those beaches are also at the proximity of shops and cafés, the beaches are shorter than in Takapuna but very popular as well.

Pt. Chevalier

Point Chevalier Beach is one of the best beaches on the Waitemata Harbour, and certainly the best west of the city. The beach is well sanded and offers good swimming near high tide.

 

Out of Auckland

Piha Beach

Piha is one of, if not the most famous beach in New Zealand. It is reknowned for its superb scenic beauty and its surf, all just 40 minutes drive from Auckland CBD. Piha has black iron sand swept up the coast from the entrance to the Waikato River, the sand produced by the eruption of Taupo eons ago.
