De­light­ful Red Beach

You can drive on up to the beach

Real Estate Outlook - - Location -

With a beau­ti­ful beach on the doorstep, easy ac­cess to the Auck­land mo­tor­way, Orewa and the Whanga­paraoa Penin­sula, Red Beach is a much sought-af­ter lo­ca­tion.

It is one of the few beaches on the Hi­bis­cus Coast where mo­torists can drive right up to the beach­front and en­joy the seav­iew without leav­ing their ve­hi­cle. Red Beach ap­peals to older folk as its cen­tral area is flat, with a shop­ping cen­tre, churches and a school within easy reach.

Across the road from the Red Beach shop­ping cen­tre is a re­tire­ment vil­lage and hospi­tal for the el­derly. For the more ac­tive at heart, there’s also a golf course nearby and an ex­ten­sive net­work of re­serves, in­clud­ing a coastal walk­way. The un­du­lat­ing land on ei­ther side of the flat land gives many homes lovely views over­look­ing Red Beach or out over the Hau­raki Gulf and the Whanga­paraoa Penin­sula, or over Orewa and be­yond.

The beach is shel­tered and has lovely po­hutukawa to pro­vide shade in sum­mer for beach-go­ers. The Red Beach Surf Club is well rep­re­sented in surf car­ni­vals, pay­ing fine tes­ta­ment to the world­class, chal­leng­ing surf con­di­tions that Red Beach can turn on.
