14 Hidden Beaches to Visit in 2018

Piha Beach in New Zealand

Auckland isn’t known for being a beach town, but if you go about 25 miles up the road, you will find one of the most beautiful beaches in the country—Piha Beach. It’s home to Lion Rock, a massive 16-million-year-old stone that’s famous in photographs, and the black sand beach, formed by volcanic minerals, makes for one of the top surfing spots in the Pacific.
