It has the most famous surf beach in New Zealand with two beautiful black sand beaches. Its only 45 mins to Auckland, but has a real rural feel.

Piha has a really eclectic mix of people, and has an art gallery for local talent to showcase their art, a local radio station, a campsite, and a strong surfing / fishing history.
