Casual dining (not a restaurant) in a group of shops near the plaza in Whangaparaoa. We recommend getting takeaways from here and eating nearby at Arkles Bay or Manly. Very tasty and decent portions. Affordable meal.

Stop in Silverdale for the best fish n chips. This place has the freshest fish - whether you want to buy some fish to cook for yourself or for the nicest, tastiest fish n chips you can find in the area. I wouldn't get fish from anywhere else. I recommend terakihi or snapper.

Mediterranean cafe/bar/restaurant with nice dining atmosphere. Indoor/outdoor seating on the main road in Orewa, just across from the beach. Serves lunch and dinner (opens from 11am weekdays and 9am weekends). Favourite for dinner in Orewa among my friends. I highly recommend the lamb cutlets.

A bit further afield but this place makes tasty cheese and dairy products if that interests you. I recommend the Puhoi Valley chocolate milk - you might see this at the supermarket too. This cafe does brunch/lunch and you can check out all their cheeses. They do platters with cheese and food options which look nice and they have very tasty icecreams (try the hokey). Nice cafe atmosphere with lots of outdoor seating. Puhoi is a cute place to check out - make sure you stop at their library on the way past.

Restaurant tucked away in Manly village. Open for dinner 5-10pm each day. Southern American style - fried chicken, cornbread, ribs, crab cakes, buffalo wings, etc. If that sounds like your type of food then this place will be worth checking out as it gets good reviews.

Have you had a chance to luge while in NZ? The luge was invented in NZ in 1985 and kiwis love it. If you haven't tried it yet, you should try it at Silverdale Adventure Park. See the video on their website - this was filmed by Sam!

This is the closest beach to our house - about a 5 minute walk away. You can enjoy a beautiful sunset here. At low tide you can also walk along the sand to the west and then up stairs which reach Pacific Parade esplanade, a coastal clifftop walk.

This bay is shallow and very tidal - it looks dramatically different at low tide vs high tide. At low tide you may see lots of people collecting shellfish (cockles) to eat. At high tide the water is nice and clear - perfect for paddleboarding. There are picnic areas and free BBQs to use here. We recommend doing a loop walk from here to Army Bay or vice versa from our house. Due to the water being very shallow we don't recommend swimming here - Army Bay or Te Haruhi Bay are better.

Our favourite of the beaches in Shakespear Regional Park. We recommend taking a picnic and perhaps something to cook on the free BBQs provided in the picnic area. Good place to enjoy a swim and soak up the sun.

Shakespear Regional Park is a pest-free haven for native species. It has predator fences surrounding the park, to stop stoats, rats, and cats entering, allowing the native bird populations to flourish. This park has sheltered bays, pastureland, regenerating native forest, clis and a lookout with beautiful views to Auckland city and over the Hauraki Gulf. There are many walks to enjoy in the park and we love visiting the beautiful Te Haruhi Bay for a day relaxing at the beach. There is no entry fee and there are free BBQs in the picnic area at Te Haruhi Bay for anyone to use - definitely take advantage of this!

This unique island is located just o the Whangaparaoa Peninsula - out from Shakespear Park. It is a nature reserve that is great for NZ native bird watching (including kiwis, kokakos and takahe). There are many walks on the island and you can pay $10 for a guided walk along the Wattle track. An enjoyable day trip while staying at our place. $55 Ferry ride (return) from Gulf Harbour Marina.
