Where: Piha, Auckland, New Zealand
When: Visit year round but only go swimming when the lifeguards are out! It’s a very dangerous beach, trust me, there’s a whole TV show about it…
Piha is a great surf beach with heaps of rocks to climb around as well.
It’s a West Coast beach so it’s got that famous black sand and loud crashing waves.
It’s a great place to go for a day at the beach in summer or just a walk in winter.
