Book flights to Auckland

Auckland sits at the top of New Zealand's North Island, occupying a prime spot between two major bodies of water: the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean. This unique position means the city has a large harbour on either side, Waitemata Harbour on the east coast and Manukau Harbour on the west. This position has made Auckland a major port city and a popular spot for water activities like sailing. Interestingly, Auckland is one of the few cities in the world to have a natural harbour on opposite sides!
