    Karekare Beach5

    KareKare Beach is a popular destination for many Aucklanders during the summer time, and located only around 45 minutes from the CBD, the beach can get crowded in the summer, the drive down the access road is narrow and steep the turn off is just before the desent down to Piha Beach on the wild West Coast.

    The greatest attraction at Karekare are the walks and there are a few of them dotted around the place, the most popular is the beach walk that starts from the northern end of the beach, and takes you along the expansive stretch of sand to the Manukau Heads, this walk is long and tough and takes around three hours return.

    The other popular walk is the Zion Hill track, this track starts just south of the main carpark by walking along the beach access track on the southern side of the river, you will come across a picnic table and the track starts here, this walk is tough and all up hill to the summit, there are fantastic views here looking down on KareKare beach, the tough walk is really worth it when you see the beach below.

    The area around KareKare Beach and along the southern shore line has alot of history attached, this area was a Kauri forest and substantial logging was carried out here and up in the Waitakere ranges, the logs were carted to the beach by horse and cart where a railway line was set up to the Manukau Heads along the rocky coast line, and the logs were transported to waiting sailing ships at Paratutai Island, some of the tracks are still visible along the rock face.
