A Day Trip to Raglan Beach and Bridal Veil Falls from Auckland CBD - Only 2 Hours Drive


See the Video of Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls:

If you are planning for a day trip from Auckland CBD then Bridal Veil Falls and Reglan Beach are the perfect 2 spots that you can visit. The Bridal Veil Falls is only 2 hours drive from Auckland CBD. This falls was a bit different from the other falls in New Zealand. The waterfall is around 55 meters high. You must walk around 8-10 minutes from the carpark to the first lookout. There are 3 lookouts in total - one lookout gives you the view from the top of the fall. You need take the steps and go further down to go to the second lookout point which is almost in the middle of the walkway (from the top). The next viewpoint is at the bottom which is the base of the waterfall. There is a nice bridge and from the bridge, you get a nice view of the waterfall. 

Some tips: 
  • There is no proper carpark at the venue. Rather you need o park on the seaside. There are plenty of spaces, so should not be any problem unless the venue gets real busy.
  • There is only one toilet which is just by the entrance. The toilet is not very clean and well maintained. The toilet is a long fall type toilet. Take your own toilet paper with you, there might not be any. 
  • If you are traveling with children, do not take the pram with you. Then you need to carry the baby and the pram as well as to go to the base, you will have to take steep stairs. 

Reglan Beach:

Reglan beach is just 20 minutes away from Bridal Veil Waterfall. So, you can plan for the Bridal Veil falls and a bit of surfing in the Reglan beach on the same day. The beach is awesome. There is a lookout and the access is not far from car park. The sunset from the lookout is wonderful to look at from the look out. Or if you want to walk along the beach, you will enjoy the walk as well as the beach is quite long. I will share some pictures below which will give you a good idea of the beauty!
