Mission Bay

Tamaki Drive
Mission Bay, Auckland
A sandy urban beach close to central Auckland, easily reached by a regular service or on the Explorer Bus. Safe swimming is combined with sweeping harbour views. Rollerblades, bicycles, sailboards and small catamarans are available for hire during the summer months.

On the foreshore there is an historic Melanesian Mission building constructed of basalt from Rangitoto Island and dating from 1859.

Mission Bay has a stretch of bars and restaurants that both during the week and especially at weekends brings people from all over Auckland to this family and visitor friendly seaside location. Most cafes and restaurants have an outdoor area with café tables on the footpath or upstairs on the balconies - great places to sit and people watch.
The choices of food here covers nearly all bases, ranging from the reliable Fish and Chips, to be eaten in the park, to mid priced pastas and pizza to white tablecloths and fine wine.

TRANSPORT
This is an Explorer Bus stop or is easily reached by public transport. See the Journey Planner weblink.
