Great views! Black beach is beautiful!
Very nice place with a lot of birds and beautiful sunset. The point of view from the stairs is really nice especially when there is nobody on the beach.
Super sweet beach, nice for a little climb and spotting some wildlife.
Beautiful beach with black sand. If you go up the stairs you can watch a colony of gannets and some are pretty close! Watch them fly, eat, cuddle, fight..... that is very nice.
lovely view, beautiful coast
Just a beautiful place!!
Feel like David Attenborough for free. You can get reasonably close and they are fascinating to watch. It's at the end of a beach with black sand. Well worth making a detour out to Muriwai and spending a few days on the west coast of Auckland, but whatever you do, don't miss the gannet colony.
It felt like hours went by as I watched the close quarter routines of these amazing birds. Really worth a look.
Fascinating, beautiful, and free!! Close up viewing in a magical wild location What more could you ask for
Up close and personal with a beautiful natural wonder. If you are there between November and January you will see newly hatched chicks. Very cool..
