Piha Beach

Piha is a beachside settlement of about 600 people on the west coast of the Auckland Region of New Zealand, near West Auckland. It is a popular summertime retreat for Aucklanders and others from further afield. The beach is divided in two by a stream and Lion Rock, a large outcrop that looks like a resting lion.

Get in

Piha Surf Shuttle is a reasonably priced shuttle from the airport or the city. They will also pick you up from the train in Glen Eden or the bus in Titirangi (both in West Auckland).




The rugged natural beauty has attracted numerous artists into the community over the years. A great piece of art can be purchased during your stay. Given its local surf culture, you can stock up on the latest (and sometimes exotic) surf gear. Fishing gear is available so that you can try your hand at catching that big one!


The RSA (Returned Services Assn) and the Bowling Club are private clubs but welcome guests who just have to sign the visitors book.


Guests who sign in can drink at the RSA or the Bowling Club.
