The Waitemata region includes the north and east coasts of the Auckland isthmus. The name is Maori and translates as 'sparkling waters'. Auckland is known as the 'City of Sails' and its sparkling waters, islands, harbours and beaches attract world-class sailing events and sailors to its shores. It is regularly voted one of the best lifestyle cities in the world and its cosmopolitan urban centre is complemented by great escapes within half an hour of downtown.
