Takapuna to Milford Loop Walk

Copyright 2011-2013 Unleashed Ventures LimitedMany 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.

Dogs – Takapuna Beach is an off-leash exercise area 24/7 in winter, but only before 10am and after 6pm during daylight saving.

Description: Partly rocky and narrow seaside pathway. Slippery when wet.  Avoid at high tide and stormy weather. Suitable for users of average fitness and mobility.
To see:  Hauraki Gulf, beaches, marina, residential homes.
Time: approx. 75 minutes. (about 6.22 kms)
Parking: Takapuna Boat Ramp, The Promenade
Buses: Hurstmere Road, Takapuna (MAP)

  1. Took this walk my first Sunday in Takapuna and it was lovely! Wonderful view of Rangitoto. Most of the way is a paved walkway but a few places needed to scramble on rock steps. In Takapuna walked along the beach and had some feijoa sorbet at the cafe. In Milford came back via Lake Pupuke, saw the ducks and swans and people windsurfing. I’ve wanted to come to New Zealand for over 30 years and it’s simply beautiful. Just spent 3 days in Auckland itself (hope to go back and jump off the Sky Tower. Next up: Devonport! Would like to do the walk up Mt. Victoria. This is a great site–so glad I found it! Thank you.
