Stopover on return from bay of Islands to Auckland - we could not fault the hotel, but it is part of a master planned housing development on the peninsula, with quirky architectural elements! Best part was its proximity to the great beaches in the nearby nature reserve.
Our Whangaparaoa accommodation lets you enjoy this wonderful beachside part of New Zealand.
Just south of Orewa and 35 kilometres north of Auckland lies Whangaparaoa Peninsula. The peninsula lies in an easterly direction and is lined with beaches both sandy and rocky bays and stretches about 14 kilometres. Red Beach is the first Bay which has a sandy bay with rocky edgings. Red Beach has a surf lifesaving club too.
Stay in our Whangaparaoa hotels and explore the surrounding areas. Stanmore Bay is a little further down. This is also a beautiful sandy beach and not too far from Whangaparaoa’s Pacific Plaza shopping mall.The next bay is Little Manly on the southern shores. This is a small sandy beach lined with Pohutukawa trees which offers excellent shade on those hot sunny days.
Our Whangaparaoa hotel accommodation is perfectly positioned for you to set of and explore the many beautiful bays on offer.
Over the hill off Beach Road is Manly Beach, a lot larger and more popular than Little Manly. Tindals Beach is next and if you continue along the last stretch of road will take you to Shakespeare Park and Army Bay, Te Haruhi Bay and Okoromai Bay.
There is lots to see and do and our Whangaparaoa accommodation lets you soak up all the sites!
