Piha is one of the most popular beaches on Auckland’s wild west coast. Yet with its vast stretch of dramatic, black sand it always feels wonderfully isolated and uncrowded. The wild surf at Piha Beach draws seasoned surfers and it’s also a great swimming spot in summer. Piha Surf Rescue is filmed here.

Its pounding waves draw surfers and its dramatic stretch of black volcanic sand is perfect for a walk to blow out the cobwebs. Don’t miss the impressive sight of the huge gannet colonies nestled on the rugged coastline, where around 1200 pairs of gannets nest from August to March.
