Mission Bay, one of Auckland
's waterside suburbs, is popular for its easy accessibility to the Central Business District and its variety of cafés with ocean views. Rent a kayak or paddleboard to explore the bay, or take in a movie at the Art Deco Berkeley Cinema. If the weather is fine, join the sunbathers on the beach or enjoy a drink at De Fontein Belgian Beer Café. It's a relatively easy and flat 45-minute walk along the promenade from the city, or a short and scenic drive.
