What an appropriate name for this wonderful beach here at Beachlands, Auckland, New Zealand. Such a lovely peaceful place to take a stroll or just sit and watch the waves. Surprisingly close to Auckland, yet it feels like a million miles away. The first image in this post looks in the general direction of Auckland City. In fact, around the headland to the left you will see Pine Harbour from where there’s a regular ferry service into the heart of Auckland.
But looking at the views (and did you notice how crowded the place is) it’s hard to believe you’re so close to New Zealand’s largest city! The second image shows the public boat ramp with Waiheke Island in the background.
Not got a large boat? No problem. Just bring your kayak and set sail from the beach. The owner of this kayak had been doing a spot of afternoon fishing from this yellow boat. Something nice for dinner? Hard to beat fresh snapper 😉
