The clifftop and beach loop walks starting at Campbells Bay and taking in Mairangi Bay, and Murrays Bay and part of Rothesay Bay on Auckland’s North Shore provide stunning views over the Hauraki Gulf and Islands.
The beach walkway is dependent on weather and tides (check tides here).
Today the beach at Maurangi Bay was busy with sailors, surf lifesavers, swimmers and paddle boarders.
People were out walking their dogs – and the dogs looked very happy racing around off the leash along the cliff paths. Be sure to check out the Auckland Council dog rules for the North Shore beaches here.
Dogs are allowed under control off-leash at any time at Churchill Reserve Beach (Rothesay Bay).
The walkways do have steps so a good level of fitness is needed.
Description: Mostly level paths with some steps and one steep climb. Suitable for most ages and levels of fitness and mobility, designed with flat shoes or running shoes in mind. Not suitable for pushchairs. Not recommended at high tide.
To see: Coastal views.
Time: approx. 80 minutes (about 6.65 kms).
Parking: View Road, Campbells Bay. MAP
