If you'd prefer to stay close to the city, then you don’t need to venture far to enjoy a dip in the sea. The North Shore boasts some lovely beaches including Takapuna and Cheltenham, while Mission Bay is just a few minutes' drive from the CBD and a popular favourite with tourists, offering views of Rangitoto Island.
Known as the City of Sails, Auckland boasts some of the world's best sailing and sailors and was home to the America's Cup in 2003. Teams still regularly travel to Auckland to train. The Auckland harbour side offers a host of restaurants and other attractions and for those strong hearted enough there's the excitement of the Sky Walk and Sky Jump from the 328 metre Sky Tower, New Zealand's tallest man-made structure..
There are also some excellent attractions in the city centre. Get to know the history of New Zealand by visiting Auckland Museum, or soak up views from the top of one of Auckland's many dormant volcanoes.
