Waihi Beach

Beach in Hawera

You can access Waihi Beach by turning into Denby Rd and descending the steep gravel track from the carpark. At low tide you can walk to Ohawe Beach (or do it in the reverse direction). All black sand, rock pools and rugged cliffs. If you look closely, you'll spot fossils embedded in the marine terraces. Check the tides before you go and pack a picnic.
