Huia Beach, West Auckland

About Huia Beach:

Want a guided tour? - Scroll down to see what is on offer!

For those seeking something a bit further afield and more private should make a visit to Huia Beach (or Huia Reserve as it’s commonly known as.) in the Waitakere Ranges. Located 11 minutes away (8.6km) from the heart of Titirangi village, Huia beach and the surrounding town offers much to explore and maybe even a swim afterwards.

Huia is a little less busy than beaches like Cornwallis and for those seeking for some peace and quiet will enjoy that aspect.

Activities in Huia

Huia offers plenty for the outdoor enthusiasts with boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking and even abseiling being available in the surrounding area.

Those seeking a long walk can embark on the Upper Huia Dam Walk. A 17km long walk that will take you to two different dams in the Huia region and even an abandoned mine which has long since fallen into disrepair. It’s a 4 hour long round trip so be sure to bring a packed lunch and plenty of refreshments to keep you going.

After your days activities, make sure to stop off at Huia’s only store: Alfred’s Huia Store. It provides excellent coffee and food for not only the locals but hungry visitors. Be sure to pay them a visit and support the local businesses.

Huia Domain

The biggest drawcard of Huia is Huia Domain/Huia Beach.

It’s a common stop off point for tour coaches and features a large carpark on either end of the reserve. Large grass areas lead to the beach that provides stunning views of Huia Bay and surrounding Foster Bay and Hinge Bay. Looming in the distance are the Manukau Harbour and Manukau Heads.

Huia Bay travels far inland, providing a very sheltered cove that is excellent for water activities like jet skiing or kayaking but only in high tide. Low tide sees most of the water recede and a mushy sand beach is left in its place.
