Keakare beach

In 1993, Jane Campion’s Oscar Winning The Piano made Karekare an international star, with everyone talking about the beautiful black-sand.

Karekare beach is located on Auckland's west coast between Piha in the north and Whatipu in the south.

It is a 50 minute drive from downtown Auckland and a 20 minute drive from the Arataki Visitor Centre.
One of Auckland's most spectacular beaches and wilderness areas, and part of the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park, Karekare offers excellent surf, walking and picnicking.
Swimmers are advised to only swim between the flags.
Karekare waterfall, known by the Kawerau people as ‘Te Ahoaho' or ‘pendulous white thread', is nestled a short walk from the main beach arrival area.

  1. Hi Evangeline,

    I hope that you get the chance to go to Karekare beach one day. It truly is a stunning place to visit. I particularly love the black sand on the beach and the beautiful cliffs that line the shore.

    I hope that you get the chance to see it for yourself one day soon!
