Takapuna is a waterfront suburb located just outside the city of Auckland. Since the area is situated on a peninsula, it is bordered by two different bodies of water and has two separate beaches. Although visitors often come to Takapuna to enjoy the gorgeous beaches that lie along the Hauraki Gulf and Shoal Bay, the town has a lot more to offer, including shops, restaurants, and festivals. Tourists who like the outdoors can book windsurfing or jet ski tours from local operators, while those who prefer culture may enjoy a live play at the indoor Bruce Mason Centre.

  • Spend a warm afternoon sunbathing at Takapuna Beach, where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the nearby Hauraki Gulf Islands.
  • Visit Lake Pupuke, one of the most popular outdoor sporting areas around Takapuna, to go canoeing or sailing on the open waters near Auckland.
  • Attend the Auckland Wine and Food Festival, held every March at the Viaduct Harbour near Takapuna, to sample wine and cheese from local vendors.

The area surrounding Takapuna is serviced by Auckland International Airport, the biggest air facility in the entire country. International visitors arriving at the airport will need to arrange for transport to the city centre. To reach Takapuna from the airport, travellers can hire a car and drive about 45 minutes to the coast. Buses are also available for direct travel to the area. Passengers can take a bus from Eden Park in Auckland directly to Takapuna. Within the area, the best way to get around is by car or taxicab.
