St. Heliers is a lovely neighborhood with a local beach in Auckland, New Zealand. At the time we spend in Auckland we often walked along the Takapuna Drive all the way out to St. Heliers. The beach is not so famous as Mission Bay, but much nicer I think. It’s small and there is a small beach house with change rooms, some cafés and stores and a sports field. St. Heliers Bay can be pretty crowded on the weekends, too, but during the week it’s very quite and relaxing.
