Views from the Beach

'Tis the season to get shopping…. eating…. drinking…. being merry…. being with family, with friends and for thinking about those who are less fortunate than we are and to giving… our love, our friendship, out time and experience our patience and our wisdom.

Takapuna is the perfect spot to spend some time together and enjoy our little piece of paradise, whether it’s a picnic in Killarney Park, a walk along beach with a coffee or an ice cream, a tasty lunch or dinner with friends, you are certainly spoilt for choice.

If a little self-indulgence is your preference and after all, you deserve it! Why not treat yourself to a few new wardrobe items, a new hair style, a relaxing massage or a yoga session? Whatever it is you deserve, you’ll find it in Takapuna.
