By Linda Tancs

Auckland, New Zealand’s capital, offers adventure in every direction. In the area known locally as East Auckland, the coastline beckons water enthusiasts eager to experience the Hauraki Gulf, an area comprising over 2 million acres of blue waters dotted with emerald islands reachable by water taxis.

One of Auckland’s most spectacular driving routes is along the Pohutukawa Coast, named after the iconic tree.
