Holiday Bach to let in Kaipara, near west Auckland
Many want to get out of Auckland for their summer holidays but don’t want to travel too far. Shelly Beach on the Kapiara Harbour is the perfect answer.
It’s only an hour from Auckland being only 22kms north-west of Helensville. It is the only boat ramp on the south Kaipara coast, has a quiet beach, a couple of play areas for the children and the Sand Bar cafe which serves fantastic food.
For holiday accommodation, there are a few baches available to rent. This one, Pavlova Paradise, is like a trip down memory lane for Kiwis who yearn for the old-time bach before they were bulldozed and replaced with McMansions.
The Kaipara Harbour is the biggest harbour in New Zealand. It provides sheltered waters for fishing but also has deep channels and ready access to the Tasman Sea through the heads.
For a relaxed holiday within an easy drive of Auckland, you will find it hard to do better than check out Shelly Beach on the Kaipara.
People looking for a quiet break relaxing with some books, artists looking for clear natural light and plenty of wonderful landscapes or seascapes, it is ideal.
