Bethells Beach (Te Henga)

Just a few minutes away – Bethells Beach stretches almost two kilometres along the West Coast and is made up of black volcanic sand. There is a “Jurassic Park” feeling as you wander the shoreline. And as well as being amazing to see, the scenery also makes for some pretty awesome photos! Bethells Beach is normally not super busy so you can enjoy this magical place without the large crowds that swarm other attractions around New Zealand.
