Black Sand beach adventure day (Piha, Kitekite, Waitakeres)

Piha, Bethells, Muruwai are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world

Hundreds of kilometers of sand and nearly entirely empty of people. Wild, untamed, huge powerful waves crashing on jagged rocks.

Beautiful bush surrounding the entire region. Waterfalls, swamps, sand dunes, rocks to climb, caves to explore. 

Our product, as much as possible, is designed to feel like you are having a 'day at the beach', and are not stuck on a guided tour. Unless you prefer that!

We will take you out to one of these beaches, following discussion about the group preferences, and the weather conditions. 

We will give you a safety briefing about NZ beaches. And we will show you where everything cool in the selected beach is. Then, your time is your own. Enjoy and explore. 

Lie in the sand. Swim in the ocean (or waterfalls or lakes), wander through the caves. And take lots of pictures! If you want to go surfing (conditions permitting) we can connect you with board hire or even lessons. (extra costs for these)

If you like, there is a packed lunch available (for a little extra)...

There are also cafes near two of these beaches.
