1. Piha 

On the west of Auckland you’ll find Piha – a black-sand surf beach famous for it’s rugged landscape, scenic walls and the stunning Kitekite Falls.

2. Mt Eden

A short walk from down town Auckland, you’ll find Mt Eden, the tallest volcano in Auckland! You’ll be able to get amazing 360-degree views of the city.

3. Rangitoto Island

Hop on the ferry and make the short trip to Rangitoto Island where you’ll be able to discover Auckland’s youngest and largest volcano! A popular place for hikers and day-trippers.

4. Mission Bay

If you’re looking for a relaxing place to take in Auckland’s harbour views, then Mission Bay is the place to go. Just a short drive out of the city, you can wander to the beach, dine in one of the many restaurants, head out on the water and enjoy stunning views.

5. Waiheke Island

Famous for its wineries, vineyards and all-round relaxed atmosphere, Waiheke Island has so much to discover. If you’re looking for something more energetic, there are also plenty of activities such as horse riding and exploring the island by scooter!
