Welcome to Leigh By The Sea

Auckland’s Coastal Paradise

Eaglemedia FB page

Leigh, one hour’s drive north of Auckland city, is famous for NZ’s first marine reserve at Goat Island. There’s no better place to see the abundant marine life, just off the beach, by snorkelling, diving or the glass bottom boat. Visit the Goat Island Marine Discovery Centre and the Ti Point Reptile Park which cater to all ages. See activities.

There is a range of food at the Sawmill Cafe, Leigh Bar and the fish and chip shop. Stay longer in one of the accommodations – camping, bed and breakfast or self-contained.

Beautiful coastal, bush and farm walks. Close to Tawharanui, Scandretts, Mahurangi and Pakiri Regional Parks. Beaches include surf at Pakiri and Omaha and sheltered swimming at Matheson Bay.

Check out the wildlife page to see more about birds, whales, dolphins and other marine life. Kayaking and fishing are other local options.
