A Spare Hour in Takapuna?

Our coastal neighborhood is becoming quite the destination for all of our city dwelling friends. Should you find yourself in Takapuna with a spare hour or two on your hands, here’s what we recommend you do to fill in your time!

~ Take your morning tea to the beach! Grab a takeaway coffee and some French pasteries from La Boulange at The Department Store, walk across the road with your gorgeous waffle blanket from Nature Baby in hand and down onto the beach!

~After you have scoured the Takapuna Markets on a Sunday morning for the best deals on fresh produce, fresh juices and flowers, why not take a moment to relax! Take five with the girls at Lucy & The Powder Room by letting them treat you to a Mini Manicure. Nails are shaped and buffed. Cuticles are treated. Next, your hands are blissfully massaged with a hand & nail treatment, then your therapist will assist you with your choice of colour and ensure a long-lasting application. Call Lucy & The Powder Room on 09 488 0585, or come in and visit the team at The Department Store!

~ With the warm weather in its last days, what better way to say goodbye to the sunshine and the beach with a paddle boarding session! We recommend talking to Mark at Standup Takapuna, on 09 486 6229. Don’t forget your I Love Ugly cap, your boardies and your Coola Sport SPF35!
