It seems that Auckland really made the best out of it geographic position. The fact that One Star Hotels Auckland are usually full of water-sports lovers is a great insight into the city’s international water-sporting reputation.
That’s why they call it the City of Sails – one out of three Auckland families own a boat. It’s not only boating that’s big, almost every water related activity has a place in Auckland. You can go diving, kayaking or fishing. Surfing is really big, too, and it goes well with sun bathed relaxed lifestyle. So be prepared to get a wet, and remember to run to, and not from, the ocean when you hear someone yelling “surf’s up” at the beach.
