Lake Wainamu

Who would have thought, massive black sand dunes and a lake so close to Auckland's West Coast? If you aren't in 'the know' you will miss this little gem.

Take a leisurely splash in the Waiti stream hugging the massive black sand dunes, or head for a swim in Lake Wainamu itself.

Only 10 minutes from the side of the road, is a marked track leading you to this Bethells surprise,just kilometres away from the ruggest west coast beach itself.  The stream is a shallow spot to paddle for the smaller children, or for the energetic there's a track leading to the Waitohi Falls. 

Follow marked tracks over the dunes and enjoy this peaceful and vast display of dune, lake and forest.
