Lion Rock Piha Beach

The west coast community of Piha with its black sand beach and Lion Rock.



Dubbed as New Zealand's most famous surf beach, Piha Beach is guarded by a coastal formation called Lion Rock. The rock receives its name from its shape - a large full maned male lion with front legs outstretched.

Piha Beach is a popular weekend getaway destination for many Aucklanders who wish to escape the city. As well as a small permanent population, Piha boasts an abundance of baches (aka holiday homes) and during the summer holiday months bursts at the seams as families take up temporary residence in their baches.
