Back Beach is probably one of the nicest beaches in Taranaki. Great to take the dogs for a walk, great scenery and is sheltered.

Black Sand. Excellent place to take a walk and some amazing views. Look at the wall of rock and you can see the layers along the time...

great beach to go and walk along or if the tides out you can visit the islands there but don't get caught when the tide comes in
good place to relax in the sun for a few hours

Stunning landscape and volcanic black sand make this beach unique. So far it's the most beautiful beach I've ever been to... Ideal for long walks or just laying under the sun.

there is about a hundred stairs to go down to the beach. Fine on the way down but very hard work on the way back up. great for exercise though. And be careful you don't get halfway down to find your path blocked by a seal, like I did. Had to veer off the stairs into the hillside to get round it. Back Beach is black sand but it is lovely down there to walk along the beach.
