Nov 10, 2021Living At The Park

Chances are you have already heard of Orewa – it’s one of New Zealand’s most idyllic beach towns. Situated just outside of Auckland on the Hibiscus Coast, Orewa is a coastal town with something to offer everyone. If you have never been to Orewa – or even never heard of it – then you are missing out on all the incredible things this town has to offer. 

Keep reading to learn a bit more about Orewa.  You’ll see why this charming town is the perfect place to live, no matter what stage of life you are in.

Amazing Location 

Orewa is one of the best-located beach towns in New Zealand. 

The town gives you the best of both worlds, combining urban amenities with spectacular seaside views. Orewa is a bustling community filled with plenty of shops, cafes, and restaurants – it’s perfect for those who like to get out and about. 

The difference between Orewa and any other town in New Zealand however, is that you get all the benefits of the vibrant urban community, but you are also right on the beach! Orewa beach boasts 3km of golden sand and a warm, swimmable stretch of ocean. 

Unlike other beach towns, Orewa has plenty of apartments, houses, and even retirement villages being developed, meaning there’s housing to fit just about anyone’s needs.

When you choose to live in Orewa, you’ll also have easy access to larger towns nearby.  Albany is a mere 15-minute drive away, and due to its location near SH1, Auckland CBD is only 30 minutes away. 

 Laidback Lifestyle 

Choosing to live in Orewa means you’ll get a beach holiday experience all year round. 

Orewa is a busy little urban township with cafes, restaurants, and shops that offer premium services and amenities, but as it is right next to the beach, the overall vibe is a relaxed one. This idyllic urban-beach balance can suit anyone from young families to retired couples. 

For those who are career-driven but have decided that the city lifestyle is not for them, Orewa is the perfect place to work from home. There is plenty to do around Orewa to keep you busy on the weekends, including numerous water sports clubs, cycle and walkways, and various events in the town hub. However, it is significantly more laid back than the average city environment, and the “beach holiday” atmosphere sticks around all year. What better place to work than right by the beach? 

Alternatively, if you are at a different stage of life and looking for somewhere to retire, Orewa can still be the place for you. The relaxed beach lifestyle is perfect for retirees, and the bustling town centre is more than enough to keep you as active and social as you would like. 

Family-Oriented Environment

If you are considering moving to Orewa but you’re worried about whether it is suitable for children, or even grandchildren, don’t fret! Orewa also caters to the young. 

Orewa is an ideal place for children, as it is situated in a high decile zone with many quality educational institutions, ranging from preschools to secondary schools. 

Orewa is a tight-knit community where everyone looks out for their neighbours, which means it is very safe. The beaches are also patrolled by highly skilled New Zealand Surf Life Saving guards, making it the perfect family swimming spot.
