Black Sand Pizzeria & Bistro

Pizza in Oakura

Reliable Black Sand is right on the beach and shares a building with the surf club. It’s a surprising location to stumble upon authentic Napoli-style pizzas – all thin-based and blistered crusts – but these wood-fired beauties made in a custom Italian oven give the rest of Taranaki a run for its margherita. Bistro food, breakfast and beer on tap are also available.
