Explore and relax in a wild coastal landscape at Piha Beach, formed by distinctive volcanic black sand. Divided in two by the imposing bulk of the towering and iconic Lion Rock, the beach remains one of the area's most popular. Grab your surfboard and hit the waves, or just kick back along the shoreline and enjoy the view of the sea, accented by the lush surroundings. Keep in mind during your visit that the beach sometimes has very dangerous riptides, so swimming far from the shore is best avoided even for confident swimmers. Put Piha Beach into our Piha family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
