Auckland’s Hibiscus Coast is well loved for its beautiful beaches and laidback lifestyle. The beachside resort of Orewa is the heart of the Hibiscus Coast and just a 25 minute drive north of Auckland city. With its long, sweeping stretch of white sand, Orewa is a firm favourite with holidaymakers who come to enjoy the relaxed seaside atmosphere.

Just out of Orewa, Auckland’s Whangaparaoa Peninsula boasts safe, sandy beaches and scenic walks in lovely Shakespear Region Park, or stop at Silverdale for a spot of factory shopping. A short drive north of Orewa, you can break your journey with a relaxing soak at Waiwera’s thermal hot springs.
