Piha / Lion Rock
Lion Rock in all her refective glory ! This natural formation is named after its similarity to a lying male lion. Visitors to Piha are able to climb the rock, though (be warned) a certain amount of stamina is required. Lion Rock divides North and South Piha beaches. This landmark is immediately visible to visitors as they descend along the only access road. Lion Rock is an iconic sight synonymous with both the West Coast and New Zealand in general (it's even been featured on stamps in the past) ! This picture was taken one late afternoon. Managed to get a good reflection on this one.
