Places | Pakiri beach
September 27, 2015
With summer just around the corner, I'm on the trail seeking out lesser-known beaches around Auckland. First stop - Pakiri beach. Just 10kms north of Leigh, around the bay from Goat Island marine reserve. A pristine white stretch of coast, rolling sand dunes and tumbling surf waves. Best of all, the place is crowd-free. I could almost believe I was back in my Cook Islands paradise again.
