Location / Nearby Piha Ocean Lookout
The first lookout is on the road into Phia, it is used on the police driving video ( Seen on Air New Zealand). The best place for a view is from Tasman Lookout on the south end of the beach, 10min walk up the hill.
Piha Lookout with a hike, walk and nice scenary- Ramanan Arampamoorthy
Unlike Muriwai, Piha doesn't seem to have a beautiful spot to observe the ocean with a easily accessible location by car. Although on the way to Piha, there is a spot many people stop and take photo but this is a side view not a straight ahead view of Piha. If you are into walking, hiking or running then doing one of this whilst getting an awesome view of Piha is great, right. Try this White, Rose & Laird Thompson track in Piha. These are three tracks but one after the other will take you in a oval shape route and will get you where you started. you will have great views to the ocean at the top of your hike and will finish the hike with long walk in the North piha beach. ramanan arampamoorthy
We arrived into Auckland after the long journey from the UK. Graham collected us from the airport (showing infinite patience after our flight had been switched), and took us to the house. It was an oasis of calm, and after drawing breath, we enjoyed welcome fizz and nibbles on the terrace overlooking the bay. Others have commented on the stunning view, and they are not wrong (breakfast is set up for maximum impact!). the hospitality was faultless, and we couldn't think of a nicer way to start our holiday, touring various parts of New Zealand.
What a View!
We were at the beach very early in the morning and got to watch a surfing competition before walking up to the lookout. The path in spots was muddy, but overall easy to get to the top if you have decent footwear and fitness. Take time for photos and go down to the beach. It was absolutely empty!
