This is French Bay, in the Waitakere Ranges in the mouth of the Manukau harbour. It’s a safe place to swim but children need to be supervised. It’s a place where people take their boats out to fish or just to go out in the Manukau harbour. When the tide is out, it doesn’t look as good.
I found some beautiful birds here as well. A great place with some sea shells to see and lovely New Zealand bush to see. People walk here with their dogs as well.
