Exposed “pillow lava” cliffs are often a feature of this guided walk with Kiko Tours at Muriwai Beach. Take a leisurely walk along the rocks at low tide. A tour favourite with lots of options to walk under the cliffs and then up to the viewing platforms at the top. This stunning environment is a hidden gem on Auckland’s West Coast.
I was recently offered an opportunity to expand my business by taking visitors to the Auckland Botanic Gardens.
Auckland Botanic Gardens (the Gardens) is an award-winning botanic garden based in Manukau. The gardens are unique with a distinctive South Pacific flavour. The Gardens covers 64 hectares with 10 hectares in native forest.
There is a very good Visitor Centre which provides a space for creative displays and exhibitions and Café Miko offers various food options with morning and afternoon teas plus lunches.
I think you would agree that the gardens and landscape is absolutely stunning.
We can combine your visit to the gannet colony with a scenic walk along Muriwai Beach. As we continue down the path to Muriwai Beach you will be astounded by the diversity of things to do.
We can explore the caves at low tide or view the pillow formations on the cliffs above or head northwards along the beach as far as you like.
Here you will often see an array of colourful kites in the air. Muriwai Beach is a popular destination for kiteboarding and is well known for big waves and strong steady winds and is located on Auckland's West Coast.
