Go on a sunny day when the wind is from north east (unfortunately not the prevailing wind direction in the Auckland area). With this wind direction the main swimming beach will be calm and the water clear for swimming.

Tiritirimatangi is one of those places that more tourists than Aucklanders know about. It's a hidden secret gem in the Hauraki Gulf. An hour or so by ferry transports you to a beautiful island bird sanctury, where you get to see and listen to native...More

The day trip to the island in late spring/early summer is a must. Take the walk around the island and enjoy the views and especially seek out the bird feeding-stations. The birds will reward you with their antics and birdsong. Enjoy !
