80 minutes drive north of the city, Tāwharanui Regional Park includes one of Auckland's best beaches. The 588 hectare park features green pastures, wetlands and a gorgeous white, sandy beach that attracts plenty of surfers.

The park is the country's first sanctuary combining farming, conservation and sanctuary. It's a a great place for picnics with gas barbecues allowed onto the grounds. Basic campsites are available just a short stroll from the beach but need to be booked in advance. Campervans can park up to two nights in the designated care parks.
