One of the only patrolled beaches on the Shore and yours truely is one of the best right hand break boogie boordies on the planet.....in my mind!
You can swim here in summer...
Ice cream on the beach is a must. Great view of rangitoto and the bay.
Some of the biggest waves I have ever seen in New Zealand. Very nice beach.
Be sure to grab an ice-cream up the road before heading down in the summer
Buy fish and chips from Mairangi Bay Fisheries and chill by the beach
