Piha and Karekare beach

Posted by admin On April - 6 - 2006

This Thursday the weather was perfect for a trip to Karekare and Piha beach. To drive there from Auckland you will need 1 1/2h. That’s not this far and the way goes through the small roads in the bush. Wonderful. First we stopped at a giant waterfall on the way to Karekare beach. As I said once the sand of the beaches of the western coast is black due its volcanic heritage. On the opposite on the eastern coast the sand is white. Karekare was wonderful, wild and almost empty…The waves this time not this high. No wonder that the producers of ‘The Piano’ choose this beach as scenery for some of the magnificent shots.

After visiting Karekare we visited the famous Piha beach. They say it’s the most dangerous beach on earth, every year many people die in an accident because they are too reckless. There are big slipstreams. In the middle of Piha beach is a giant rock called lion rock because it looks like a laying lion.

“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”
