Trips and Itineraries for Piha
Exploring New Zealand - North and South Island
As a part of my travel plans around the world, I have been exploring New Zealand of late, covering most of North Island and Queenstown (in South Island)....
The Piha beach in Auckland is very popular with tourists and locals alike and not without reason. A beach of black iron sand, it is known for some serious surf, making swimming quite a dangerous activity here because of the rip tides and currents that have been known to break canoes! Apart from the beach, the cliffs and the Waitekere Ranges that lie behind the beaches also have trails and hikes.
