Whangaparaoa Peninsula Beaches

Whangaparaoa Peninsula Beaches

Access to Whangaparaoa is from the Silverdale motorway offramp, with the turnoff on Whangaparaoa Road before Orewa. The peninsula is mostly suburban, but with a number of attractive sandy beaches, and Shakespear Regional Park at its tip. Keep going along Whangaparaoa Road and take any one of several turn offs to the local beaches, mainly on the north side.

Just as you enter Shakespear Regional Park, you will see the road to Okoromai Bay which is on the south side of the peninsula. At low tide, you can collect cockles from the beach (maximum of 50 per person!).
