Mairangi Bay is a vibrant residential seaside suburb with a distinct village atmosphere on Auckland’s North Shore. Within easy commuting distance of Auckland City, a dedicated busway system provides public transport links into the city and further afield. The area, along with adjoining Murrays Bay and Campbells Bay, has an eclectic mix of housing from original holiday cottages through to modern, unique designer homes, apartments and stunning cliff-top properties with amazing water views.
The main draw card to Mairangi Bay’s relaxed lifestyle is the beach for swimming, watersports, walking or just relaxing on. The surf club – very much a local icon, has the distinction of being the only surf club along this stretch of coastline. For younger children there is a popular playground just beside the beach, as well as a very kiddy friendly, fully enclosed playground right in the actual shopping precinct. The picturesque coastal walkway both over the clifftops and along the shore line is yet another of the very many attractions to this popular locality. A number of community sports and social clubs are based in Mairangi Bay including tennis, beach volleyball and bowls as well as the Mairangi Arts Centre which offers a variety of day and evening classes. Nearby Murrays Bay has a yacht club - a hub for sailing enthusiasts - where some of New Zealand’s finest sailors began their careers.
