Takapuna Beach is Auckland’s best city and beach location! Takapuna Beach Holiday Park occupies a prime location in the heart of Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore. We offer absolute beach front sites right next to the water with stunning views of Rangitoto Island and the Hauraki Gulf. You can wake up to sound of the waves, and watch the ships and sailing boats enjoy the tranquil waters.

The local beach reserve and boat ramp are right next door, with the busy Takapuna shopping centre just a few blocks away. The many bars and restaurants of Takapuna are a short walk from the Holiday Park, as is our world class entertainment venue, the Bruce Mason Centre. We are also close to public transport routes via bus and/or bus and ferry to explore the treasures that the Auckland area has to offer. We recommend checking out Devonport, the CBD with all of its city attractions, and the Hauraki Gulf Islands.

For water sports enthusiasts, Takapuna hosts yachting, kayaking, waka, swimming and numerous other sporting activities. The beach is also a favourite with kite surfers, wind surfers, paddle boarders and even surfers, given the right conditions! For wildlife fans, we have seen both dolphins and orcas from the Holiday Park, and there are an abundance of seabirds. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a Blue Penguin!
