Where is it?
Red Beach is part of the Hibiscus Coast, a beautiful coastal area just Nt of Auckland City (the largest city of NZ pop 1.4 mil). Only 25mins from the city, the HBC has the advantage of being close enough so one can experience all the city has to offer, as well as enjoying rural countryside, 14 beaches within a 15 min drive, and the more relaxed pace of a seaside area. In the local area there are movie theatres, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, fashion shopping, snow centre, luge and go carting centre etc. Within a 5 minute walking distance from the house itself, is a small shopping complex with fast food, corner store, hairdresser, dvd store, liquor store, petrol station, pub and pharmacy. In the other direction, also within a 5 min walk, are 3 sep. children play areas/parks, and 2 beaches (Red Beach and Orewa). Red beach is approx. 1km long and quiet enough that often you can walk the length of it without seeing another soul. Beautiful pohutakawa trees line the foreshore, and the sun rises over the water, making this a magic spot early in the morning. On the other side of the hill is Orewa Beach. This is a longer beach approx. 3km long, and is great for taking walks on. Both islands in Nz enjoy amazing scenery. It has many attractions inc. skiing/snowboarding, caving, fishing/diving, boating, whitewater rafting, tramping, and more. Within short flying distance are many Pacific Islands (Fiji, Hawaii, Samoa Vanuatu, etc) awaiting that tropical getaway.
