Photos taken at Muriwai 23-11-2007
A windswept rugged coastline stretching 60 km north makes Muriwai one of New Zealand's most spectacular black sand surf beaches. At its southern end, Otakamiro Point is the site of one of this country's few mainland Gannet breeding colonies. This headland and offshore islands are also home to White fronted terns (Tara), Blue penguins and Fur seals (Kekeno).
