We're a cheeky duo re-visiting the island in spring. I'd like to introduce my fellow traveller to the delights of nude swimming, and can't think of a more pleasant place to do this than Waiheke :. Please tell us where the naturist beaches are, how to get to the specific stretch of sand are the spots marked?
Auckland is surrounded by beaches, and as the largest population center in New Zealand, it is inevitable that there people who enjoy naturism. The most popular, established, and nicest are Pohutukawa Bay and Little Palm Beach and on a summer day, particularly on the weekends, these two spots are invariably crowded with beachgoers enjoying the Auckland summer weather. For those looking for a sandy oasis a bit further off the beaten path, there are several other options where you may discreetly sunbathe sans clothing—and some that you might want to avoid listed just for information.

Ladies Bay in the east Auckland suburb of St Heliers has long suffered from multiple spellings of its name - and a questionable reputation. While "Ladies Bay" is the name at present printed on an Auckland Council sign, the place has also been known as Lady's Bay, prompting the question, who was the lady?
