Set amongst volcanic islands and a multitude of harbours, it’s easy to see why we call it the City of Sails, it’s the perfect playground for yachties. Savour a vibrant Polynesian lifestyle in the city’s markets and restaurants or take to nature and dig your toes in the coarse volcanic sand of the regions western beaches.
Auckland has the highest boat ownership per capita in the world. Known as the “city of sails”, the Auckland Anniversary Regatta takes place with more than 1,000 entries.
