Beachlands is a small seaside suburb located East of Auckland. The area is made up of Beachlands and Maraetai with Whitford and Clevedon being surrounding suburbs. We have a population of about 5,000, and this is growing as other areas are becoming more built up and the attraction of Beachlands and Maraetai has risen quite rapidly as quiet, rural and marine lifestyle villages with easy access to the city centres.
Beachlands and Maraetai are twin settlements and are located just 15 minutes from Howick, 20 minutes from Manukau and Papatoetoe, 30 minutes from the Airport and 35 minutes from downtown Auckland. We are also just a 5 minute drive away from Formosa Country Club, which consists of a world class Bob Charles designed golf course, luxury 5 star accommodation, gym and convention centre. Adjacent to the Formosa County Club is the Pine Harbour Marina, complete with berths, public boat ramp, boat builders, electrical and marine engineers, liquor store, watersport shop and various other facilities.
Both Beachlands and Maraetai have a Primary/Intermediate School that caters from new entrants (year 1) to form 2 (year 8). The Beachlands School roll presently stands at approximately 340, while Maraetai Beach School has approximately 220 students. If your child/ren are College age, then we have a free school bus that takes them to Howick College. We also have a Kindergarten in Maraetai, Playcentre in Beachlands and a Montessori Childcare and a Child Daycare centre in Whitford.

A supermarket, a superette/dairy, liquor store, 2 bakeries, 2 takeaways, Video Ezy, Post and Lotto shop, craft shop, hairdresser, restaurant, butcher and L.J. Hooker Real Estate, along with a Medical centre and a Police Station, with most of these outlets being open seven days a week, and just down the road we have a Building hardware store. Maraetai, Whitford and Clevedon have small shopping centres as well.
We have many clubs in the area, and they are always on the lookout for new members - no matter what age you are - young or old there is something for everyone, you can take your pick from: sailing, rugby, soccer, tennis, athletics, netball, aerobics, indoor and outdoor bowling, scouts, girl guides, cubs, arts and crafts, Probus, garden circle, St John’s, Civil Defence, Senior Citizens Club, Toastmasters etc, and if equestrian is what you are into then there are Pony Clubs at Beachlands and Whitford with wonderful bridle paths in the area and Polo at nearby Clevedon.
