Evening at Piha Beach

Miles upon miles of black sand beachesThe impressive Lion Rock (which you can partially hike up for unrivaled views)Less then an hour drive from Auckland
The beautiful black sand stretches as far as the eye can see at Piha Beach. Just a short hour drive from nearby Auckland, Piha Beach makes for the perfect evening getaway.
Hike to the top of Lion Rock (well almost the top...the last portion of the trail is closed due to loose rock and hazardous conditions) for an amazing view of the breaking surf and setting sun. Ease of access and stunning beauty make this a must do if you're in the Auckland area.

So Close to Auckland...
Piha is a sleepy little beach town that has the quintessential NZed vibe, feel, people and experience. Get there early, go for a swim/ surf (be mindful of the tides/ current) then have a picnic and be prepared to be amazed by the sunsetting on Lion Rock. Heck, even climb up it and see it from there.
