Mission Bay Beach and Playground
Mission Bay Tamaki Drive
New Zealand


Set away from the road, this is an extremely popular spot at weekends and on a nice day. There's a good playground right on the beach with swings, climbing frames, wobble bridges, slides and lots of climbing structures - suitable for all ages.

There's plenty of grass area and because it is set back from the road it's safe for kids to run around. Toddlers and learners should take their trikes and bikes as there's a lovely long path running along the beachfront. Can be heaving at weekends and school holidays so be warned!
