heaps of beaches around Auckland, just depends on what you're looking for,eg; secluded spot,good surf, closeness to home, etc. Some nice spots like Waitakere ranges which would be good for picnic I'd think. Maybe do a websearch for some info, eg; lonley planet

Good luck and hope you have an enjoyable xmas day

Go to Muriwai, in my opinion you can't beat it and there are some good picnic spots around there as well.

You might want to consider coming a bit further north . There are some lovely regional parks north of Orewa. Wenderholm & Mahurangi for starters. Just down the road from us is Shakespear Regional Park, Te Haruhi bay is a lovely place to have a picnic or barbie. A great place to swim & has some lovely walks with fab views over the Hauraki Gulf
