    EXPLORE

    An imposing rock arch dominates the foreground, while several figures walk along a sandy beach scattered with rocky islets.
    Only accessible at low tide, this area of Wharariki Beach is best explored by walking from east to west. Then return via the Green Hills trail.

    Spectacular Wharariki Beach

    After several days riding our bikes, we finally reach the end of the Wharariki road. We pitch our tent at the local campsite, then follow a path through sheep-filled fields. Half an hour later, we face the spectacular Wharariki beach. Our eyes travel over the vastness, while our ears enjoy the relaxing sound of the waves gliding gently over the sand. Low tide is the best time to explore this paradise!

    As we approach the rock formations, we realize the forces at work here. On one side, the beautiful, indomitable Tasman Sea, on the other, impressive porous sandstone cliffs and pebble conglomerates. The perpetual duel between water and rock has created a stunningly dramatic landscape of arches and caves. Suddenly, a wave rises to our feet, reminding us that the tide is coming up. I stay as long as the tide allows for a few more photos…

    Under a blue sky, a wave glides gently over a long sandy beach. Several rocky islets appear on the horizon.
    From one end to the other, Wharariki Beach is about two kilometres long. This paradise can be explored on foot, but also on horseback, thanks to local tours.
