Anawhata Beach, West Auckland

About Anawhata Beach:

Anawhata is a beach on the coast of New Zealand to the west of Auckland.

Radius from Auckland; 40 km (50 minutes drive). Piha, Karekare and Whatipu are to the south of Anawhata. To the north are Te Henga (Bethells Beach) and Muriwai.

It's one of the least visited beaches in the city because there's a long, unsealed path to get there, and a steep trail down to the ocean.

Local iwi (tribe) Te Kawerau and Maki have been occupying this area for hundreds of years, and many settlements and fortifications have been built.

By 1870, Europeans had set up farms and timber mills. A 14 km tramway was constructed between Anawhata and Whatipu to transport the logs of Kauri.

T has no surf patrol and, like all the beaches west of Auckland, swimming might not be safe due to rips.

The Auckland Tramping Club used the Anawhata stream for a day trip back in 1966. Trampers were dropped off in the hills above the stream, and were picked up by an old bus several hours later from the beach.

Anawhata is just north of White's Cove. You can walk from Piha, or there's a long twisting metal path that switches off Piha Path. Anawhata is part of the municipal parkland, but a lot is currently private land.

There's a steep walk down to Anawhata beach from the end of the road. Once there, you'll need to cross the Anawhata stream to the next port, called Parera Port. This is a place where you'll see a lot of surfers in the right conditions.

Sometimes I'm afraid to admit to new people that I'm an Instagram creator. I feel like that is something that some people don't really appreciate and some can be really judgmental towards it. I guess I'm afraid that people assume that I'm really shallow and a self conscious person. When actually I'm really silly and I have lots of layers like a onion.๐Ÿ™ˆ
I would also like people to remember that this is something that I feel creative about. It might seem easy job but actually there is long process behind it.
First plan the photoshoot and find someone to take pictures with. Then we have to hope that the weather will be good too. Sometimes it's not enough that it's not raining because it can't be too sunny that I can't keep my eyes open and not too cloudy that the sky looks blue. Then starts all the editing and planning that everything looks also good together in the feed. Sometimes I can spend hours doing this.

That's why I feel it's really important to communicate with you people here and I really appreciate all of your comments and likes. I always go through every single of them and I try to communicate with you back.ย  So I want to thank you all who always supports my work and me here.๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

We all agree that New Zealand is a beautiful country. Iโ€™ve been living here for more than 5 years and a half, discovered most of the it and still, one of my favourite places is the Waitakere Ranges at sunset. I donโ€™t need to go that far from where I live. Iโ€™m a photographer of simple tastes ๐Ÿ˜…

I can never get enough of Anawhata. You can walk around the cliffs and see great views of Keyhole Rock and rent out the historic Keddle house built in the 1930's. Immerse yourself in the beauty and solitude of this quaint picturesque beach. It will move you and you will keep coming back for more๐Ÿ˜Š
