Black Sand Beach Day Trip

Piha Beach

On the 14th of February, we made our way to the lovely Piha. Our first stop was at the visitors centre where we had a great view out across the small town and beach. There was a small museum inside where you could see typical artwork of New Zealand that had been created and inspired by this region. Following this, and with some knowledge about this area, we went the nearby waterfall. To get there we had to do a little hike. The waterfall was huge and the surrounding area was stunning. Some brave people went for a swim in the waterfalls cold water.
Our next stop was Piha beach, which some of us might know from the popular NZ television series – “Piha Rescue”. This black- sanded beach is also well known for the “Lion Rock”, a rock that looks like a lion. If you wanted, you could climb up this rock, to have a great view of Piha beach. Some people were lying on the beach; others hired a surfboard to surf on the massive waves. It was a really relaxing day and we had a lot of fun!
