Popular beach with a great view of Rangitoto Island. If you want more of a walk, you can walk along the shoreline to Milford beach (if the tide isn't too high)
Great swimming beach with stunning views of Rangitoto Island and plenty of cafes nearby. There is a really nice coastal walk from Takapuna to Milford, well worth doing.
Playground, boating club, restaurants and shops, it just another paradise to go at North Shore.
It's simply a great beach. Lined with Pohutakawa trees it's a really nice walking spot. I recommend walking early in the morning (watch the sunrise) and later in the evening to unwind.
