Arkles Bay

Fast grow­ing beach­side sub­urb

Real Estate Outlook - - Location -

Fac­ing south­west to­ward Auck­land, Arkles Bay is sit­u­ated be­low the ridge on which the Whanga­paraoa Town Cen­tre, Pa­cific Plaza, is lo­cated. This is an at­trac­tive beach which is pop­u­lar dur­ing sum­mer. Af­ter wind­ing your way down the cliff to Arkles Bay you’ll find a flat area of land that has been de­vel­oped with a mix of hol­i­day homes and per­ma­nent res­i­dences. The greater area of Arkles Bay has now been ex­tended out the south­west to in­clude new hill­side sub­urbs. In fact Arkles Bay is one of the fastest grow­ing parts of the Hibis­cus Coast. There are more than 2500 peo­ple liv­ing in the area. This num­ber is set to raise due to the high num­ber of sub­di­vi­sions and hous­ing de­vel­op­ments tak­ing place in the area. Around the cor­ner from Arkles Bay is Weiti River and Okura River Es­tu­ary. The Weiti River serves as a use­ful moor­ing area for leisure craft, and has its own boat­ing club, and a jetty for line fish­ing. Arkles Bay has fan­tas­tic sea views in­clud­ing Ran­gi­toto Is­land framed by beau­ti­ful ma­ture po­hutukawa and nor­folk pines. It has a safe swim­ming beach and a boat ramp 50 me­tres away. Shop­ping, cine­mas and restau­rants are a five-minute drive. A golf course and the Gulf Har­bour ma­rina are 10 min­utes away where fer­ries leave for Auck­land.
