Tasman Look Out Track

Best Kept Piha Beach Secret

The Tasman Look Out Track is located at the southern end of Piha Beach. Starting the track by a set of steps ascending to a rocky headland with a stone viewing platform. The panoramic view of Piha, including the southern Piha bays are such a reward!    

The track continues hugging the undulation of eroded ancient Waitakere volcano slope, passing Taitomo Island and Nun Rock. The dramatic sea cliffs and rocks are terrestrial lava flows (Lone Kauri Formation) and volcanic conglomerate (Piha Formation).

The track ends at "Keyhole", a gash that penetrates the torso of Taitomo Rock. Experienced surfer and surf rescuers use this dangerous "shortcut" to reach breakers at open sea, or enhance their rescue skills. It is not for the faint hearted!

Through Pahutukawa groves, the track reaches Puaotetai bay and "The Gap", where incoming waves collide at the turn of the tide providing a spectacular sight. The overflow creates a sandy swimming hole called the Blue Pool
