The Pohutukawa Coast
The Pohutukawa Coast lies to the east of Auckland City, a distance of approx 50 km by road, and to the northeast of Manukau City approx 20 km by road. The area has transformed from a place for holiday makers to a village offering a balance between a rural lifestyle and quick access to Auckland city. Now it is the fasted growing area of Auckland.
A popular spot to relax and swim is Maraetai Beach with it's beautiful beach, a wharf and cafes and restaurants.
Very popular are the local regional Parks:
Between Beachlands and Maraetai winds the coastal walkway along the coast which is featured in lots of publications.
