Piha is New Zealand’s most famous surf beach. Situated on the west coast of the North Island, 40 kms from the city of Auckland, this black iron-sand beach has a reputation for awesome surf which rolls in over the Tasman Sea. When Uncle Toby’s Iron Man contest was held at Piha in 1997, canoes were snapped in two and they’ve never come back.

Located 30 kilometers from the ground, about a 30 minute drive, the Waiwera Hot Pools offer a range of pools and water slides for both fun and recovery.
