Muriwai Beach

Out of my boredom of the inner city life, we rented a car and drove westward, out to Muriwai Beach. It was a glorious, sunny, Saturday... perfect for the beach. Except for a cafe and a surf shop nearby, the beach was untainted by commercialism.

Muriwai is known for its black sand beach, fishing, good waves for surfing, and bird watching. Here are 40+ beautiful pictures of the Muriwai Beach area. You'll see a few pictures with tons of white birds with tan heads. These are called "Gannets", which I believe are native to New Zealand. http://www.kodakgallery.com/I.jsp?c=95reg1b.7nyw5lmj&x=0&y=hhwxa6
