Bethells Beach, Auckland

4.6
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Auckland
Black-tinged sands and crashing waves make Bethells Beach popular with surfboarders and skimboarders. You can also explore the nearby boardwalks and bushwalks, leading to waterfalls, caves, and hidden coves. The prevailing westerly winds provide favorable conditions for parasailing and hang gliding in this area. For a calmer bathing experience, head across the sand dunes and take a dip in a nearby freshwater lake, trapped between the green bush and black sands.

  • There's a lot of black sand in the Biselys sea, this sea is like a long stretch of kilometers, it's great to be able to open to the sea, there's a stop by the sea, there's a lot of convenience, it's very convenient to build a holiday to walk around this sea.
