is an Auckland suburb. It is one of the East Coast Bays suburbs, and is well known for its shops and beaches.
Browns Bay has a fantastic shopping area, with all you need from cafe's, restaurants, boutiques, library and supermarkets.
Take a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk which runs the full length of the beach. Have a picnic on the foreshore, take a swim or launch your boat!
The beach front also has a skateboard park which is well used by the young population, a play area and a Boules court.
In the center of the main shopping street (Clyde Road) is a small mall, at the non-beach end of which is a small outdoor stage, which anyone may use - given enough prior warning - and entertain the populace at any time of the week.
