Also we occasionally see orca or whales and during winter New Zealand fur seals. As well as all the fishes!

The best way to enjoy it all, is by just snorkelling off the beach.

Leigh Business Community

Just an hour north of Auckland – Leigh is the place to be!

Our group recently held their AGM and elected a new enthusiastic committee. Our aim is to bring more visitors to the Leigh area. Many visitors have commented that they wish they could have stayed longer to take in our beautiful scenery, beaches, birds, walks and marine life. There are plenty of options for staying in the area with three motor camps, numerous bed and breakfast rooms and self-contained accommodations.
