Auckland is a beautiful city to ride a Water Bike in with over 80 beaches and over 30 lakes, there are so many options that it’s hard to choose the perfect place for a Water Bike ride. Therefore with so many different options, we’ve decided to list the top spots in Auckland (in no particular order) you should visit with a Water Bike.

1. Takapuna Beach

Takapuna Beach is a beautiful calm sandy beach located in the heart of the North Shore of Auckland. It has a spectacular view of Rangitoto Island as well as lush green trees that line the beach reserve, and an urban backdrop of the Takapuna town centre including the Sentinel Apartments building. We have frequented Takapuna Beach on multiple occasions with our water bikes and have never been disappointed.

2. Mission Bay Beach

Mission Bay Beach located minutes away from Auckland’s CBD is the centrepiece of this charming waterfront suburb. It has a stunning view of Rangitoto Island along with being one of the most idyllic beaches in Auckland. There are plenty of activities to do alongside water biking, you could even consider racing a paddleboarder. With a visit to Mission Bay Beach, you won’t be disappointed.

3. Lake Pupuke

Lake Pupuke is located just around the corner from Takapuna Beach, shaped like a heart (according to some people) Lake Pupuke is a stunning location for a water bike ride. This freshwater lake occupies a volcanic crater with a circumference of 4.5 km leaving plenty of room for you to cycle about. Lake Pupuke is a popular location for rowing and sailing, as well as featuring a healthy population of Black Swans so make sure you stay aware of your surrounding.

Big Manly Beach is a gorgeous spot located on the Whangaparaoa Penisula. It features a long sandy beach that is sheltered from the wind with a shoreline that extends for approximately 1 kilometre with very few rocks to impede on your cruise.

5. Lake Wainamu

Lake Wainamu is a hidden gem in Auckland, located in Waitakere Ranges and is one of the few spots on the west coast that is perfect for a water bike ride.

Very Few Aucklanders have visited this lake let alone gone for a Water Bike cruise, you could be one of the first to do so!!!

On a calm day, Orewa is a magical spot for a water bike ride. This 3 km long beach makes for a great workout for those who are willing to cycle along its shoreline.
