Shakespeare Park is so beautiful and serene. During the weekend and public holidays it can be busy but visit it on a weekday morning and you sometimes are the only person on the beach! Stunning spot and great for the soul.

A great day trip from Auckland with plenty of hiking opportunities. We did the big loop around the area.

Great place for a day out or a morning walk. There are several well marked trails... though sometimes you have to look for the coloured markers that may be in the middle of a field. If you look from one post you should be able to see the next. We combined all the trails into one, going around the whole... More

Shakespear Regional Park is located at the end of a peninsula, out from Whangaparoa, about 30km north of Auckland. It is very much a recreational reserve with picnic facilities for day-use, beach access, short walks and some overnight camping and van sites. A small viewing tower stands at the high point of the park. There is a parking area about... More

Shakespeare Park is a beautiful regional park. You can take short walks or longer hikes through bush walks, paddocks, sand & gravel. You will see sheep, cattle & stunning scenery. Take a picnic & play frisbee or cricket at the park, or swim at the beach. The Pohutakawa are stunning in December too. Wonderful place to spend time with your... More

A nice quiet place for a walk. Went through to the furthermost carpark which led to the start of the waterfall gully walk. There are multiple options for the walks, most of which go through farm land. Keep an eye out for coloured poles which are signposts for the different walking tracks. I almost got lost trying to find the... More

While staying in Whangaparaoa, we went for a late afternoon walk in Shakespear Regional Park ... we almost made a mistake and nearly ended up going for a walk in the Army's live firing range. We found the correct way in, parked our car and off we went. This park is a pest free habitat that provides a sanctuary for... More
