We've seen some stunning beaches in our time but this is right up there with the best. Great parking, great facilities, plenty of room for everyone and a great mix of people all enjoying the amazing, clear, clean surf.

Wow, what a view in every direction. Amazing beaches, rocks and mountain views. Stunning spot to take photos. Toilets available and a good beach for whatever activity you might choose. Interesting sculptures. Beautiful farm land behind the beaches with views to the distant wind farm. This whole coast line is just amazing, go down every road leading to a beach... More

You need to be fit to visit this beach as it is down a very steep walk. Full of surfers so take care if you swim.

We were a little late in the morning and parking was busy. There is a good downhill walk to the beach and a couple of places to watch the surfers on the way up. Pretty black sand beach well worth a visit

One of the best beaches i was in NZ. Surfer area, big & sauvage. Not far from the Raglan Center, a nice town.

Not great weather, but we did go for a swim and enjoyed it! Would still not feel too crowded on a busy day.

Ok we loved this beach - it was simply beautiful and then the Life Saving crew were so fantastic and took my older relatives up the kind of crazy hill in their buggy to the carpark!

Had a wonderful horse ride on that beach (Surf & Turf) while my frinds went on a walk with their dog. Seems to me that everybody Comes along quite well with each other here on this beach. There are as well spots to swim.

I really enjoyed this beach, especially bodyboarding... It's nice to walk along although the sand does get very hot... I have been a number of times so it's definitely worth going....
