Muriwai Beach Spot Guide

About Muriwai Beach

A popular beach break with an adjacent left-hand point, Muriwai is located on the west coast of the North Island, a short drive from Auckland. Tends to get crowded, but the beach is long enough that you can often find your own peak. Mind the rips, as they can be pretty strong.
