Muriwai Beach

with 4 comments


Muriwai is one of my favourite places on the planet… It’s beauty and fierceness are indescribable. Every time I am there, I am shocked by it and as I leave I am planning my next trip. It’s only an hour from home, so it’s not that difficult. The seabirds are incredible, here are two – a gannet with nesting material in its beak. This is a massive bird, with a metre or more wingspan. On the bottom is a Caspian Tern. I am pleased with this shot, though I wish it were a bit sharper, but they fly like bullets, so this is good – especially since he’s got a bit of dinner for the kids in his beak!

In between, a couple of landscapes and to-die for sunset.

I love Muriwai!

    • Well, if you can’t make it in person, you can indulge with the photos… but should you win the lottery one day, I have a gorgeous guest room with a peak at the harbour… and we can drive out to Muriwai, and KeriKeri, and Piha and you will fall madly in love with it and never want to leave…


  2. These are amazing. Permission to use one as a header image when I change over? (Probably the second or third one)

    • Absolutely! I’ve been spending a bit of time out at Muriwai again this summer. It’s the only beach I go to and never swim… going out again on the 2nd. Should go sooner…
