New Zealand - Piha - 14 to 16 January 2010
The drive into Piha is steep and narrow but the view from the top overlooking Piha is awesome. A steep valley dotted with houses on the hillsides with a black sand beach with steep dramatic headlands at either end. Roughly in the centre of the beach is a huge rock, Lion Rock.
The beaches are crowded with people and surfers.
I walked south where a beach exists nearly landlocked except for a few places for water entry and exit. The headland here is steep and fun to climb.
Lion Rock is also a good climb with great views.
