Kelvin Strand Beach

Auckland, Auckland

The Kelvin Strand beach is can be found at the very tip of the Te Atatu peninsula, just outside of Auckland City. The beach is unspoiled white sand sitting in front of a walkway and grassy parkland that’s prime space for sunbathing or picnicking. Visitors can catch fantastic, photo-ready vistas of Auckland’s Sky Tower and the Harbour Bridge, weather permitting. The water here is shallow and frequently muddy, and sand bars stretch out for a considerable distance away from shore during low tide. On-site facilities include a children’s playground.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
