Torbay is a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. It is located on the city's North Shore, and is governed by Auckland Council. The name Torbay comes from the area of the same name in the south east of Devon, England, and from the Tor, a presque-isle at the north end of Waiake Beach that becomes an island at high tide.
Attractions in the area include Long Bay Regional Park which attracts over a million visitors each year. There are also a number of smaller public beaches (Waiake, Torbay beach, Winstone's Cove, Ladder Bay), which are highly accessible and utilised both for swimming, and mooring small yachts.
