A string of exquisite little beaches line the shores of Herne Bay, one of Auckland’s most desirable and expensive suburbs. Despite the real estate—the home that dominates Sentinel Road Beach recently went for $24 million—there’s an egalitarian feel to these charming gems and each has its own personality. Hamilton and Cremorne beaches have the clearest water at high tide—but the sandy shore also disappears, so throw your towel on a low-hanging pohutukawa branch and jump in. Hipsters drinking craft beer pack into popular Sentinel Road, while Herne Bay and Home Bay have a little more room to move around and spread out a picnic blanket.
