Oct 13, 2021Living At The Park, Property Investment

New Zealand is filled with many idyllic beach towns, so why buy a property in Orewa? At Orewa Beach you can live the quintessential Kiwi beach lifestyle without sacrificing location, weekend activities or even a bustling town hub. Orewa Beach gives you the best of both worlds. 

Why Orewa? 

Orewa, situated just outside of Auckland on the Hibiscus Coast, is a beautiful beach-side town with a vibrant community and its famous 3km long beach. Buying property in Orewa means you can enjoy all the highlights of an urban lifestyle, such as eateries, activities for all ages and quality schooling for your children, all while living right by the beach. 

Here are some of the reasons why buying property in Orewa Beach is the right decision for you and your family. 

Don’t Sacrifice Location

When buying a seaside property in New Zealand, you often have to sacrifice location. However, buying an apartment or property in Orewa gives you the best of both worlds as you do not have to sacrifice an urban location for the beach experience. Orewa is a bustling community filled with plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants, perfect for those who like to get out and about. The community itself also has a lot to offer, with frequent local events and markets happening year-round.  

All this is situated right by 3km of golden sand beach, giving you the opportunity to experience an urban lifestyle, right on the beach! You can swim, shop and enjoy a delicious meal in town all in one day at Orewa. 

You also aren’t confined to just Orewa. If you fancy a weekend in the big city, it’s just a 15-minute drive to Albany and 30minutes to the Auckland CBD, perfect for a day trip or even a weekend getaway. 

Outdoor Activities 

Orewa has plenty for those who like to stay active, with water and land-based activities on offer.  

In terms of watersports, Orewa has it all. From surfing to stand up paddleboarding, and even kiteboarding, watersports are increasingly popular, and are available for seasoned pros and amateurs alike. 

If you prefer land-based activities, Orewa still has something for you. Cycle the Te Ara Tahuna – a 7.5km cycleway around the Orewa Estuary which doubles as a walkway. Or perhaps visit the Alice Eaves Scenic Reserve for a walk through some of the beautiful natural bush that New Zealand has to offer.  

For extremely keen hikers and trampers, Orewa is in close proximity to many more walks and beaches, such as Wenderholm Regional Park, Long Bay and Shakespeare Bay. 

Family Friendly 

Orewa is not just for the adults – it is also an ideal place to raise a family. Orewa features a high decile school zone, with many quality educational institutions ranging from preschool through to high school in the area. There is opportunity for the children to get involved in clubs and sports, from watersports, club sport and even skiing at the near-by Snow Planet Indoor Ski Park. 

There are many playgrounds dotted along the beachfront and Orewa Beach itself is patrolled by the Orewa Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. This makes it a safe beach for the whole family. Furthermore, the Surf Lifesaving Club also offers programmes for young children to learn lifesaving and water skills.
