Many of Auckland’s most popular attractions are located close to Takapuna, so it is a great place to base yourself while you are in town. Takapuna Beach and the Takapuna Golf Course and Driving Range are two of the best places to explore here. Two other worthy points of interest that are within a short distance of Takapuna are the Stancich Reserve Park and the Narrow Neck Beach.
Of course, people come from all the countries of the world to see Mt. Eden, one of the best-loved attractions in the country. It is only 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the middle on the city.
Be sure to visit some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make the area such a unique vacation destination. Walk through the exhibits and savor the quiet atmosphere of the Royal New Zealand Navy Museum and Devonport Museum in Devonport.
Get your body moving out-of-doors at the many picturesque places nearby. Relax and enjoy the fresh air. Feel the breeze through your hair at one of the area’s beaches, for example Cheltenham Beach. To see the native flora and fauna, head out to Mount Victoria and North Head.
To browse through stores or enjoy a light meal, visit the Auckland Fish Market and the Birkenhead Artisan Market in Birkenhead.
When it’s time to rest your weary head after checking out the charms of Takapuna, check in to one of the many local accommodation options. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep it’s hard to go past the Auckland Takapuna Oaks, Bayswater, the Castle Spencer on Byron Hotel, and the popular Auckland Northshore Motels & Holiday Park, Northcote.
