      Beautiful spot

      Well worth a visit. Run, slide down the North end sand dunes, (take cardboard or a boogie board) on the black sand beach or just watch the local surfers. Sunset is the best time but cooler

      Back Beach Taranaki

      Beautiful view of the sunset over the horizon. Grab a picnic mat and some snacks and you can sit on the grass and enjoy the colours of dawn.

      Very black beach

      Went there a couple of times while staying near New Plymouth. Very attractive looking out at the islands; very black sand; good for a walk.
