Ngarunui Beach, Raglan

4.8
#2 of 20 in Outdoors in Raglan
The rough western exposure of Ngarunui Beach provides ideal surfing conditions along this stretch of black sandy beach. Visitors come for the beginners' surfing, but stay for the sunbathing and invigorating swimming in this scenic spot. Lifeguards patrol the beach during the summer months, keeping an attentive eye on swimmers. Onsite surf schools rent out boards and wetsuits. Take advantage of the scenic area above the beach for picnicking, hiking trails, restrooms, and lookout points to watch surfers and sunsets. Lush green rolling hills surround the sandy beach. Note that in windy weather swimming can be a challenge here; inexperienced swimmers should exercise caution.
