Te Henga, Bethells Beach
Te Henga is an unhurried, resilient little pocket of Auckland region. Just like we all are, Te Henga, and the west coast itself, has been shaped by the elements yet it is so peaceful and content with itself. Her beauty makes for a wonderful metaphor in tackling life’s challenges, adopting a growth and wellness mindset and the result is a well nourished, evergreen strength, peace and beauty. Experience it for yourself.

Wild, picturesque, dramatic. This place knows how to make you feel alive. Piha, West Auckland beaches most famously known, especially for its wonderful black-iron-sand surf beach and also unpredictable waters rolling in from the emerald Tasman Sea. Confident swimmers and surfers are best to enter the water here, remember to stay between the surf lifesaving flags.
Plus – North Piha beach is an expansive, glittering coastline just welcoming you in for another refreshing dip or surf. Remember to always swim in the patrolled areas as this stretch of sea has many rips and undertows. North Piha beach is home to little blue penguins, oyster catchers and pipits, so you’ll have to leave your good-boy (doggo), at home to protect the wildlife. At the north end of the beach is Te Waha point which is a heritage, old Pā site. ‘Pā sites’ refers historically to Māori settlements which were fortified, often by choosing to settle on hills surrounded by cliffs.
