The name is taken from the small inlet into the Hauraki Gulf, which can be accessed via Rothesay Bay Road. There is a rectangular piece of parkland adjoining the beach, alongside which is the Rothesay Bay Creek. To the north is situated Browns Bay, while to the south is Murray’s Bay.
Rothesay Bay beach is in a wind funnel and gets a sea breeze.
Rothesay Bay is under the local governance of the Auckland Council.
The population in the 2006 census was 5,019 people, an increase of 606 since 2001.
