The Bucklands Beach Waterfront Motel is located right on the promenade of the beautiful Bucklands Beach, Auckland, New Zealand. Close to East Tamaki and Highbrook Business Park. Only 15 mins to Botany Town More Centre & Sylvia Park. The airport is 30 mins away. Take the local ferry at Half Moon Bay Marina to downtown Auckland or Waiheke Island. Unwind on your own deck or walk to nearby restaurants, relax on the safe beach across the road. Less
