Nice black sand beach south of raglan. You better need a car to go there. Showers, water fountain and basic toilets. Good surf beach. Lefts work better than right-hands. Good for beginners.

As you approach this beach you get good views of it and the surf, before winding down through the grassy bank to the beach itself. It's a lovely beach to walk along, taking pictures. There were constant breakers coming in and surfers enjoying them whilst...More

Raglan is known for its surf beaches, and this one didn't disappoint; we saw plenty of intrepid surfers. It was a chilly autumn day but we noted that it's also a swimming beach, and the Raglan Surf Lifesaving club is based there.

You may be intimidated by the LEGEND OF RAGLAN waves. But this beach everyone can surf, and enjoy the area's spectacular scenery.

One of the beautiful west coast beaches. Great surf. Lots of space. Can be quite a walk down from carpark areas if busy.

We went on a wet and windy day a few weeks ago. Great place to learn to surf. Wetsuits (probably needed) and big beginner boards (definitely needed!) are available for hire. Worth a trip
