Many walkers on Auckland’s North Shore will be familiar with this route. We start off from the boat ramp at Takapuna, head along the shore line over sand, rocks and narrow pathways; past beautiful houses that overlook the Hauraki Gulf and Rangitoto Island to Milford, where we head inland along the marina before returning to Takapuna.
This walk suits sure-footed folk, and you would want to avoid high tide and stormy seas.
