Great value, Family-friendly

This self-contained, late-Victorian neighborhood has plenty of historic sites, including North Head, a British fort dating back to 1887; and two of Auckland’s picture-perfect beaches, Cheltenham and Narrow Neck. Climb to the top of Mount Victoria for gorgeous 360-degree views of the city, Hauraki Gulf, and the North Shore. The neighborhood has great local cafes, including Tiny Triumphs for craft beer, fine wine, and good times; Bette’s Bar & Eatery for tapas-style food and sustainable wine; Chateaubriant, the French deli, café, and local institution; and the Officers Mess, on the historic clifftop of Narrow Neck beach. Officers Mess is only open Sundays and serves classic café dishes with a twist, such as house mince and poached eggs on ciabatta. Finally, there’s the Vic, the community theater that locals campaigned fiercely to save—this art-house cinema and performing arts center also has an excellent bar and tapas.
