Cheltenham Beach is the most popular in the Devonport suburb of Auckland. It is a good-sized sandy beach bordered by the North Head Historic Reserve to the south. Just offshore is the striking form of Rangitoto Island, a 260 m (850 ft) high volcanic cone which only formed around 600 years ago.

It is well worth a visit to the North Head Historic Reserve, if only for the view back down to the beach. Here you will also find various military installations including tunnels and artillery guns dating back to the Second World War.
