Stunning views of Piha can be obtained before you drive down the valley to the beach. This place is famous for it's wild surf (big surf competitions take place throughout the year) and the rock you see before you. 'Lion Rock' is an iconic sight - and one you can climb ! The community in Piha has it's own radio station because being out on the West coast is not conducive to connectivity. Leave the mobile phone at home ! It's time to unwind and enjoy nature when you get to Piha ! As you can see (looking at the trees in the picture) it was a windy day. This is not an unusual event. This landscape has been shaped by wind and other elements for millions of years.
