One of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas just north of Auckland and is made up of around 450 residential properties. For the visitor and residents, Algies Bay offers fantastic fishing, swimming, water skiing and other water recreational activities.
It is the home of the Sandspit Junior Sailing and is the center for a number of Regattas both International and National.
The area has three public reserves, toilet facilities, two playgrounds, a Petanque Court and nearby Highfield Reserve offers fantastic views over Kawau Bay as well as having a group of resident donkeys who really enjoy meeting visitors and making friends. Just over the water from the Bay is Kawau Island, made famous by Sir George Grey, and visitors may wish to visit Mansion House by catching a ferry from Sandspit or when just boating in the Bay.
