Day four: Maraetai

Given how awful the weather has been of late a beach destination should provide the perfect remedy. Tucked away on the Pohutukawa coast, Maraetai provides an idyllic setting for a summer barbeque or winter stroll. On a clear calm day the views across the water to Waiheke Island are stunning. A thirty five minute drive from central Auckland through Howick and the Whitford gorge, Maraetai is a perfect day trip. In the summer months the beach provides safe swimming and a wharf for a dinner of fish and chips. In March Maraetai becomes the base for the swim leg of the Auckland Half Ironman.
