I went to Anawhata beach today. It lies between Piha and Bethells beaches on Auckland’s west coast. A ten kilometre gravel road goes off Piha road, ending in a carpark high above the beach. A steep poorly-maintained track goes down from the road a little beyond the carpark to the beach.
Because there’s no direct road access, Anawhata is the most remote west coast Auckland beach. I saw a few people in the distance, but felt I had the beach to myself.
Distance travelled: 78 km. Total distance so far: 29,229 km
