PihaApril 21, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C
Our final stop from our trip up north and we thought it was time we visited the west coast and those famous black sand beaches so we stopped in at Piha on our way back to Auckland.
Not quite a day for swimming, with some pretty wild waves and messy currents, we were happy enough to walk along the beach and watch some mad surfers brave the conditions.
Whilst completely different from the sandy beaches and crystal clear water of the east coast and Pacific Ocean, the west coast was beautiful in a more wild and rugged way. We spent quite a while watching the huge waves rolling in from the Tasman Sea.
Now back to Auckland for another pit stop before we head to Waiheke island tomorrow.
