A hike that takes all day. You hike up, down and all around the coast. The ending brings you to Bethells Beach. If you do it on the weekend, the cafe is open and you can end with a cup of coffee and a snack.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Whichever way you choose, up over the black sand dunes or along the stream, the hike is pretty short and everything is beautiful. Running down the dunes is the best part.
A big, free black sand beach filled with caves to explore! Not safe for swimming but there is a lake just 2kms away to swim at, plus giant black sand dunes to slide down.

Spectacular views from the top, black sand bays where you can go swimming.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
