Kaitarakihi Bay, Northern Manukau Harbour

Auckland, New Zealand
Managed by Swim Guide NZ

Kaitarakihi Bay is a beach with fine, pale sand and makes a quieter and less-crowded alternative to the nearby Cornwallis beach. Gorgeous views of Manukau Harbour can be had from the beachfront, and welcome shade is provided by a copse of overhanging pohutukawa trees. On the road down to the beachfront, visitors can stop off to see Spragg Monument, a stone spire erected to honour a local pilot killed in the First World War. Facilities include parking and toilets.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is essential right now. Follow the advice of the health experts. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Heading to the beach should only be considered an option if social distancing practices can be followed. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter the efforts to curb the virus’ spread.

For more information, please visit the World Health Organization public resource on COVID-19.
