Aucklanders are some of the most fortunate urban dwellers in the world because of their city’s proximity to beaches and natural sites. At any point in time when an Aucklander feels nauseated with the skyscrapers, bustling traffic and unlimited flow of commuters, they can hop into a car and drive their way to a countryside destination or a beach.
One of their favorite destinations – Piha Beach, which is not your typical white or golden sandy paradise. Located on the west coast region of Auckland, Piha possesses the rare black sand, but believe us when we say that this makes this beach more distinct and special. The dark hue is a result of a volcanic eruption on Lake Taupo, thousands of years ago.
