This is a small bay found just before North Head. It was named after the naval torpedo boat housed here in the early 1920s. French explorer Dumont d'Urville landed here in 1827 and the memorial to the arrival of the Tainui canoe from Hawaiki about 1300 AD can also be found here. This is an excellent bay to swim at during high tides and a popular place to launch boats

http://www.northshorecity.govt.nz/Coatal_walks/default.htm This route follows the cliffs along the beach from Cheltanham Beach to Takapuna. At low tide only, it is possible to walk almost all the way on the shoreline.Rocks may be very slippery and unstable underfoot, and there are high unstable cliffs above you. You will need to take careful note of the time of low tide, as there are several points where you can be cut off by the rising water.

A great location, off the beaten track in a historic part of Devonport, 5 loaves always produces a great coffee and a good array of counter food. I haven't tried anything from the menu but it always looks good. There is a decent box of toys and books for the kids and the staff are always really friendly.

Everything Else

Seriously worth a visit - free Wifi, great on a wet day. Its public library (in theory, there has been one on this site since 1887) is nestled amongst mature pohutukawas, Phoenix palms and an architectonic Moreton Bay fig tree dating back to 1883. To the west, is a tranquil main street – often interrupted by the trotting of a Clydesdale horse-drawn cart – and, to the south, a boat-speckled ocean.
