Beachlands Boating Club is in a public reserve, overlooking Sunkist Bay. It's a really nice location for a picnic, and should also be available for overnight parking in self-contained vans, although there is no sign either way.

 

There a public toilets, a childrens playground, and a walkway to explore. There is also a boat ramp, and a pier that you can try fishing from.

Unfortunately, the Auckland council have imposed a blanket ban in freedom camping in their reserves, which is illegal under the Freedom Camping Act. If there was no sign forbidding it, you should have been able to stay overnight. Under the circumstances, I've removed the freedom camping icon.

We parked at boat club but were told we would be moved along and gate would be locked. So we moved to the top of the hill near the log cabin and slept there.The gate was never locked.
