Parks & nature in Cheltenham Beach

Scenic Viewpoint
“Stunning views of Auckland city and Auckland harbour, this lovely park has walks, history and geography - great for families, individuals, couples. Not good for wheelchair access but ok for a mountain buggy for young ones. Guests can explore the tunnels free of charge (take your cell phone for a torch), walk around the numerous walking trails, discover a private beach or two, occasionally see a NZ fur seal or little blue penguin and even take some cardboard (your host might have some if you ask) and get the kids to slide down the grassy slopes - great fun for toddlers through to teens.”

“This is the best beach in Auckland. There are no roads along the beach only houses so it is very quiet. Great for swimming two hours either side of high tide, and at low tide you can walk out among the sand pools and see what you can spot. Walk along the beach from Bath street and up and around the mountain at the end North Head. Amazing views. ”

“Panoramic elevated views of Auckland and Waitemata Harbour. Awesome! Grab some fish and chips from Devonport Village and bring them up here. Oh, and mushroom-shaped air vents spring from the ground.”

“At low tide, you can easily walk around the rocks and foreshore from Narrow Neck Beach to Cheltenham Beach. The walk takes around 20 minutes, and if you are feeling fit, you can explore North Head which is accessed from the southern end of Cheltenham Beach. ”

“Staying with me? Guests have the Devonport ferry included in their stay. Just use your included ATHOP card to tag on and tag off like a local. Jump aboard a Devonport ferry, and take a walk to North Head for stunning views of Auckland, wander through old war tunnels, and sit on a Big Gun (For a shorter walk see Mt Victoria in Devonport).”

“The Hauraki Gulf has a number of islands that are great to visit but is a wonderful place in itself. Even if it's just a ferry ride to Waiheke.”
