West Coast Beaches

Hidden away behind Waitakere rangers are the picturesque wild surf beaches of Muriwai and Piha.

Untainted black sand, sea and surf lure people from around the world to see this natural wonder. Climb along the cliff edge to see the magnificent Gannet colony in Muriwai or learn to surf in Piha, or go horse riding along the beach. Exploring the broody west coast beaches is a fulfilling experience not for the faint hearted, the 1 hour drive out of Auckland CBD is a scenic experience in itself.
